The Meaning and Significance of "Ethnicity" in Educational Discourse.
Thomas, R. Murray
International Review of Education/Internationale Zeitschrift fuer Erziehungswissenschaft/Revue Internationale de Pedagogie, v40 n1 p5-17 1994
Attempts to clarify issues of ethnicity in educational discourse. Identifies sources of disagreement about the meaning of "ethnic." Suggests a conception of "ethnic" to reduce definitional confusion in specific research contexts. Perceives ethnicity as significant if ethnic status affects people's treatment in educational settings, if educational content reflects ethnic differences, or if educational practices influence an individual's status.
