Education and Minorities, Paperback / softback Book

Education and Minorities Paperback / softback

Edited by Chris Atkin

Part of the Education as a Humanitarian Response series

Description

This title examines the educational experiences of minority groups in different international contexts, from the USA, Finland, Rwanda, India, South Africa, Hungary, China and the UK.

The contributors explore the experience of learners from minority groups and the education policy response of authorities, drawing on the international research in the USA, Finland, Rwanda, India, South Africa, Hungary, China and the UK.

They explore the purpose of education for minority groups and in particular the place of human, social and identity capital in policy and practice.

Each chapter contains a summary of the key points and issues within each chapter to enable easy navigation, key contemporary questions to encourage active engagement with the material and an annotated list of suggested further reading to support further exploration.

This series presents an authoritative, coherent and focused collection of texts to introduce and promote the notion of education as a humanitarian response as a prime function of educational activity. The series takes a holistic interpretation of education, dealing not only with formal schooling and other systemic provisions in the mainstream, but rather with educational reality - teaching and learning in whatever form it comes at any age.
