From Interdependence, to Dependence and Independence: Home and School Learning for Traveller Children.
Jordan, Elizabeth
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n1 p57-74 Feb 2001
Investigated interactions between Travellers (historically known as Gypsies or Tinkers) and school policy toward such children in Europe. Reviews the mismatch between Traveller cultures and their schooling experience. Notes that schools ignore and devalue the children's home learning of interdependence and independence and offer only learned dependence and institutional exclusion, leading to lowered self-esteem, absenteeism, and early school drop-out.
