Janmaat, Jan Germen
Institute of Education - London
There is a widespread belief in educational circles that ethnically mixed schools contribute to inter-ethnic tolerance and community cohesion by making sustained inter-ethnic contact possible. This research explores the relation between classroom ethno-racial diversity and civic attitudes in England, Sweden and Germany using data from the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) Civic Education Study among 14-year olds. [The research paper on which this research briefing is based: "Classroom Diversity and its Relation to Tolerance, Trust and Participation in England, Sweden and Germany' LLAKES Research Paper 4."]
