This book is an ethnographic study of a comprehensive school in the south of England. It explores the views of teachers, Asian parents and their children concerning education and schooling. Young people between the ages of 13 and 18 were studied at home and at school and their experiences form the main focus of the study. The experiences of fifty Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Indian families - mostly of Muslim faith - are studied with a view to discovering what parents expect from their children's school and how the teachers perceive their own role with regard to their students. These young people are the first generation of Asians to be educated in Britain. Their location in terms of their social class positions, gender and ethnicity are inextricably bound together. They describe how they see their past and their future. This is the first study to take account of boys and girls in order to capture the complexity of their lived experiences.

There is scarcity of research and literature on ethnic minority teachers. This book makes a contribution towards the understanding of the personal and professional concerns of Asian teachers of two generations: the "older generation" who migrated to Britain during the 60s and 70s and the "younger" generation, the majority of whom were born and educated in the UK. Three salient issues emerged from the inquiry which are interlinked. Firstly, the older generation felt that their professional development and promotion have been seriously affected by the degree of racism which they have met from some of their white colleagues. Secondly, the majority of younger generation Asian teachers prefer to teach in multicultural schools, which has far-reaching consequences for the development of a tolerant and just multicultural society. Lastly, the younger generation's perceived anxiety and apprehension, namely that they would meet racism in all-white schools, comes through.

Although South Asian women are one of the most socially excluded groups in the UK, their numbers at university have increased rapidly in recent years. This report seeks to understand why they are entering university in larger numbers and the impact of this on their lives. The Role of Higher Education in Providing Opportunities for South Asian Women explores the experiences of Bangladeshi, Indian and Pakistani women at university. It considers: the role of families in shaping choices about local universities and which A-levels and degree subjects to study; how community expectations about marriage interact with plans for university; the financial strategies of South Asian women students for funding their education; experiences of racism and Islamophobia inside and outside education; and the diversity of the experiences of education among South Asian women, in terms of class, ethnicity and religion. The report is aimed at policy communities and academics with an interest in education, ethnicity and gender. It contains new findings relevant to diversity, equality and widening participation in universities.

This book is based on the empirical work of a large-scale project to investigate the possible impacts of diversified forms of parental involvement on children and school by first exploring through a series of ethnographic case studies how principals, teachers and parents perceive and act on parental involvement in the primary schools of Hong Kong and, then, examining how the different forms and levels of parental involvement are related to individual and institutional factors through a series of survey studies on all these stakeholders in children’s education. Finally, the book assesses the extent to which different forms of parental involvement affect student performance based on student survey results and available school records.​

This collection of studies investigates the individual, micro-psychological, and macro-societal factors that promote or discourage the development of child and young adult heritage language learners' spoken and written skills in East Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean). The research presented in this book is based on empirical data from various learning and social settings in the United States and Canada. The contributors are themselves mostly from East Asian immigrant backgrounds and have worked closely with students from such backgrounds. This book also speaks to the needs for future research within East Asian communities that will (a) promote East Asian heritage language development in applied linguistics, (b) encourage parental, community, and national support for East Asian heritage language development, and (c) improve the teaching of oral and written skills for heritage learners of East Asian languages in various educational settings.
