Ethnicity and Education in England and Europe : Gangstas, Geeks and Gorjas Hardback
by Ian Law, Sarah Swann
Part of the Studies in Migration and Diaspora series
Ethnicity and Education in England and Europe examines where, when and how minority ethnic groups miss out on educational opportunities.
Through a combination of comparative, quantitative and qualitative methodologies and the showcasing of new research, it provides a fresh approach to examining the long-standing debates over ethnicity, and in particular ethnic differences in educational achievement.
Drawing on extensive empirical research in England, as well as information gathered as part of a major international programme of research under the auspices of the European Union (EDUMIGROM), this book both synthesises the findings of the English team and puts these findings in context through comparison with the analytical material generated in a range of other European countries. With a key focus on the educational experiences and outcomes of the Roma in Central and Eastern Europe, as compared with the experiences of minority ethnic groups in Western Europe, this volume provides a contemporary assessment of ethnic relations across a selected range of European countries.
Presenting comparative, cross-national analyses of ethnic inequalities and policy interventions, Ethnicity and Education in England and Europe makes a significant contribution to debates in the fields of migration, ethnicity and education, and will be of interest to both scholars and policy makers concerned with questions of race and educational outcome.
