Description

This book is a major new investigation into the issues of 'race', ethnicity and education, following the educational reforms during the late 1980s. It provides an up-to-date and critical introduction to current issues and major research findings in the field, exploring the teacher-pupil relationship through a detailed account of life in an inner-city comprehensive. It reveals the influence of different racist stereotypes and highlights the especially disadvantaged position of Afro- Caribbean pupils within a school. Features: * Draws on a wide variety of research projects in ethnic schools to examine: achievement; curriculum content; language use; assessment and testing under the National Curriculum * Uses material collected during two years of research to consider young people's school experiences and issues relating to classroom discipline.

Reviews

`[David Gillborn] skilfully blends objective data, quotations from teachers and pupils and his own observation of the texture of daily life … No one reading Gillborn's closely-observed and clearly-argued research will face tomorrow's pupil management unchanged.' - The Guardian

` … offers a sound and up-to-date review of the field which is impressive in its coverage.' - Times Educational Supplement

` … written and structured (and referenced) in such a way as to stimulate the reader to think reflectively, avoiding exhortation. It ought to stimulate teachers, teacher-trainee, teacher-trainers for some years to come.' - Research Intelligence (BERA Newsletter)
