Definition of concepts
- Special education
- Education that involves curricular care and adaptations designed for disabled pupils to carry out their education process while integrated in ordinary centres or specific centres when this is recommendable due to the seriousness and circumstances of the disability.
In 1990 the Law for general ordering of the education system (LOGSE) was passed, which modifies the previous education system (LGE) of 1970. In the 1991/92 academic year the teaching approved by the new law was gradually introduced and the 2000/01 academic year was the first in which none of the teaching relating to the previous education system was still in existence.
However, the two education models coexisted over the long period of experimentation and implantation of the new education law.
The data on special education presented here corresponds to specific special education centres and specific special education groups located in ordinary centres. Integrated pupils are excluded.
Data are provisional.
