Problems and Good Practice in Post-Compulsory Educational Provision for Travellers: The Wakefield Kushti Project
Intercultural Education, v15 n3 p267-281 Sep 2004
This paper considers the work of the Wakefield Local Education Authority (LEA) Kushti Project in the UK. This project, focused on the Traveller population in England, is aimed specifically at the post-16 Traveller population in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Generally, the paper considers the project in three broad areas: recruitment, retention and achievement and progression. The results of the project point to the very complex challenges that educators face in their attempts to improve educational provision for Traveller families.
