Education, Racism and Reform, Volume 123

Front Cover
Routledge, Dec 8, 2011 - Education - 139 pages

In this introductory text the authors look closely at widely held assumptions about ¿race¿ and schooling in Britain, and evaluate the role of the school in a multi-ethnic society. Focusing on contemporary issues and concerns, they consider such controversial questions as: Is the education system rigged against black pupils? Is ¿tolerance¿ really a characteristic of the British? The volume provides a detailed analysis of the Education Reform Act (1988) and the debate surrounding the National Curriculum, and asks whether these new initiatives do truly open the doors of opportunity for all children.
