ABSTRACT

[Purpose] The purpose of this study is to clarify the contradictions and limitations in Korea's special education laws as they relate to inclusive education, and to propose amendments and future tasks. [Method] In order to achieve the purposes of this study, the definition of terms relating to inclusive education and the meaning of each provision were analyzed relative to the Special Education Promotion Law and the subsequent Act on Special Education for Persons with Disabilities. And in addition, it was reviewed whether various legal support for integrated education was suitable and appropriate for the field. [Results] Special education-related laws continued to show conceptual contradictions in the definition of special classes and inclusive education, and they reveal limitations in the practical support for the operation of inclusive education. [Conclusion] To provide a consistent perspective on inclusive education, the definitions of special classes and special educational institutions need to be revised, and the definition of integrated classes and integrated educational institutions should be additionally established. In addition, to provide the necessary support, the qualifications of a teacher in charge of an inclusive class should be specified in the law. And qualification system and appropriate compensation system should be introduced for teachers responsible for inclusive classes. In addition, the standards for the placement and placement of special teachers for students with disabilities assigned to general classes in general schools should also be legally prepared..
