Approche sociologique de la scolarisation et de l'insertion professionnelle des étudiants handicapés :

Abstract : As our study is concerned with a population known as "handicapped" it was appropriate to analyse the notion of handicap. We showed that the term was not precise. This lack of precision entails pernicious effects : thus some measures meant for individuals officially recognized as handicapped are sometimes applied to people who were up to then not considered as such. Indeed situations in which a handicap is involved vary widely as was shown all along as we hammered out our own definition of handicap. Because the word handicap is polysemous, it is difficult to point to the population concerned and consequently count them. We come up against the same problem with handicapped persons who are in Higher Education. Nevertheless the annual enquiry of the Ministère de l'Education Nationale about Higher Education institutions allows us to give an estimate. The enquiry also shows the increase in the number of students involved. We did our best to study the evolution in Nancy University by means of an enquiry which was conducted among disabled students from 1964 to 1995. We indicated the reasons why that population increased despite the fact they experienced more or less important difficulties resulting from their disabilities. Among these reasons we underlined the implementation of different kinds of measures aimed at helping along young disabled persons in their schooling and in their Higher Education and of course their hope to get a job in the end. In spite of these measures we noticed that the acceptance of disabled persons in ordinary schools or a professional environment remained inadequate. We looked for the reasons. It led us to ask ourselves if Higher Studies might pave the way for disabled students to a job.
