Teachers‘ ways of thinking and understanding affect the way in which they
shape their teaching practice. Knowing the beliefs and perceptions behind
teacher action give us valuable insights into what occurs in the
classroom. On the example of Korea, this book investigates the stance
( Haltung) that teachers – particularly special education teachers – take
about how and why their students are failing and how they might be helped.

Ph. D. Jung Gyung Sung worked as a special education teacher on primary
school level in Korea. She was awarded a DAAD scholarship for her doctoral
study in Germany and completed her Ph. D. at the University of Hamburg.
While in Germany, she also performed research as a visiting researcher at
the Institute for Special Education of Leipzig University.
