Race and Gender in the Contestation and Resistance of Teacher Authority and School Sanctions: The Case of African Caribbean Pupils in England.
Wright, Cecile; Weekes, Debbie
Comparative Education Review, v47 n1 p3-20 Feb 2003
The ways in which British Afro-Caribbean students used resistance or contestation to negotiate teacher-student power relations are illustrated, using data from an ethnographic study of school exclusions in five English secondary schools. Situated in their wider racial and gendered positions, students' resistance was a response to their experience of domination, alienation, and infantilism, and was related to racially disproportionate threats of school sanction and permanent exclusion.
