Speaking openly about their ideas on race, these nine and ten year-olds show they have internalised the prevailing western mindset - whatever their own ethnicity. And this mindset is racist. Research has long been needed into what children themselves think about cultural diversity and about efforts to counter racism in their schools. Here is the empirical, child-centred research that tells educators what they need to know. It was conducted with a sample of Year 5 pupils in two predominantly white and two diverse schools, all of whom were themselves involved in the research process. The book is suffused with their vibrant, profound and original voices and their often surprising ideas.The children's views are accompanied by the researcher's sociologically informed close observation of school life and the views and practice of the teachers, and the book concludes with the important implications she identifies for policy and practice in schools."It's not Just about Black and White, Miss" is an enlightening and enjoyable read for primary teachers and trainees and offers important new grounded information for policy makers and school managers.

This text is for teachers who teach or plan to teach traveller children. It sets out what teachers, traveller advisors and other professionals need to know about traveller culture, values, lifestyle, economic experience and learning, and relates this information to the educational issues arising from travellers' learning requirements. The authors use their experience and research to deepen teachers' understanding of the traveller child as a new or late learner rather than as a failed learner. They explain a variety of approaches and perspectives on travellers and schools and help teachers to reconstruct the curriculum appropriately. The relevant legislation is clarified and analysed, and there is guidance on providing equal educational opportunity to traveller children in light of the discrimination and hostility they face. Case studies are provided.

Official documents on early education tend to gloss over the experience of children who are learning English as an additional language in generalized terms. Because their learning situation is not well understood, bilingual children may be given few opportunities to display their abilities at school. Based on the author's ethnographic study, this book examines the experiences of three four-year-old bilingual children as they begin school in three English nursery classes. It thus provides insights into young children's use of first languages as well as English and consequently provides a fuller and richer picture of bilingual children's learning. The book reveals some of the ways in which young bilingual children experience preschool as they begin to learn the language required for formal schooling. It demonstrates how they take control of their own learning at home. And it asks questions: How do Samia, Maria, and Nazma find their own way through preschool? What are their individual strategies for getting by and, beyond that, for learning during their first year of formal schooling? How do they syncretize home and school learning? The detailed picture that emerges will fill in the detail missing from the current over-generalized view of bilingual children in the early years and provide an important new perspective to a growing body of literature on young bilingual children. It will be essential reading for all teachers, early childhood practitioners and early years policymakers operating in multilingual environments.
