Racism and Education
Structures and Strategies

Edited by:


December 1991 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This broad-ranging text offers a timely overview of both the social basis of racism in education, and the policies that have attempted to combat it. Focusing mainly on the effectiveness or otherwise of multicultural and antiracist policies, the book situates racism at school in the widest context, from the experience of individuals to the social and institutional background. A successful balance of important recent articles and substantial contributions specially written for this text, Racism and Education is essential reading for teachers, students and all those concerned with discrimination and with antiracist policy.
