Departmental Bulletin Paper 知的障害者の高等支援学校卒業後における学びの場の保障

牧野, 誠一

In Japan, very few students who graduate from the upper-secondary department of special needs high schools for students with intellectual disabilities can go on to attain higher education. No official universities accept students with intellectual disabilities. However, many of these intellectually disabled persons are seeking opportunities for higher education. Some supportive people founded schools and organizations to fulfill the hopes of students with special needs. These people have managed to continue running such schools with great difficulty. In this paper, I analyze the present condition of “open colleges,” “special needs school non-degree graduate programs,” and “learning workshops.” These schools and institutions have made great efforts to cater to persons with intellectual disabilities who wish to pursue studies after graduating from the upper-secondary division of special needs high schools. From the results of an analysis, I determine the kinds of schools and institutions in which adolescents with intellectual disabilities would want to attain higher education.
