This chapter delves deeper into the processes of twentieth-century special education institutionalization, providing a case-based comparison of the growth and persistence of special education in the United States and Germany. Both countries pioneered in institutionalizing special education and are originally quite similar in major institutional respects, but have diverged over time in response to broad social changes transforming disability, education, and human rights.

Keywords:   special education, institutionalization, United States, Germany, disability, education, human rights
