Abstract [en]

The article is built upon a historical study of the establishment of an early form of school ("Hjälpskolan") in the Nordic countries. It is shown that in the public educational discussion in the beginning of this century, stress was laid on involvement and integration of the deviant and poor children into regular education. Notwithstanding, during the first decades of this century the segregated form of school became common. The author relates questions about what "abnormality" is to the overall discussion of "deviance" in contemporary education policy and to the prevailing epistemological debates. Furtermore, determinants of the emerging discourse "specialpedagogik" are specified, e.g. how "deviance" is socially constructed, how its understanding is corraborated in the philosophy of science, and how theories in fields or disciplines like macroeconomics, social policy, education, physiology, and psychology have contributed to the development of "specialpedagogik".
