OHL, Nathalie Guerrero; ANGELUCCI, Carla Biancha; NICOLAU, Aneline Menezes  and  HONDA, Caroline. Schooling and prejudice: memories of disabled and not disabled youths. Psicol. esc. educ. [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2, pp. 243-250. ISSN 1413-8557.

This article presents the result of some narratives of school trajectory by young people between 18 and 22 years old, both sexes, three of them disabled. All of them were studying or had studied in inclusive schools. The instrument we used for the study was the semi-directed interview. Based on the memories of the interviewed, we highlight the experience of inclusive education and the necessary changes in educational institutions. The discussion of the concepts of prejudice, school inclusion and disability has become necessary for a more sensitive understanding of the field in which they forged the search process. The result obtained is that the interaction with other people and activities with friends at school are the most significant memories. The research revealed the presence of experiences of prejudice in the school environment and the need to prepare teachers and changes in the structure of school.

Keywords : School inclusion; School psychology; Prejudice.
