Racism and Antiracism in Real Schools.
This book focuses on race at work in the British educational system, a concern that is pertinent because education occupies a pivotal role in contemporary race politics. The study on which it is based blends school-based research with a critical reading of policy and theory. The experiences of teachers in real schools show that schools can challenge racism in school and in the world beyond. The original study grew from a wider study of a number of educational issues; two secondary schools for case studies on racial issues were chosen from participants in the larger study. In both case-study schools it was clear that race and racism were taken seriously as whole-school issues, and both schools were regarded by government inspectors as being in the forefront of good practice in regard to equal opportunities. Part 1 focuses on policy issues and broad educational issues with regard to race. Part 2 provides more detailed examinations of study schools, student perspectives, and antiracist change as it can develop in the schools. Antiracist teaching issues are also explored in light of the British National Curriculum. (Contains 6 figures and 414 references.) (SLD)
