Education and the social construction of 'race' by Peter Figueroa( )

Does the education system help or hinder the fight against racism? This volume provides a constructive critique of the Swan Report of 1985 and of sociological research into racial and ethnic relations. The author undertakes a searching philosophical and sociological analysis of multicultural and antiracist education. He shows how the education system itself can reinforce racist assumptions and behaviour in society, but also argues that through educational and social reconstructing it can promote constructive cross-cultural relations

Multicultural Education in the United Kingdom: Historical Development and Current Status by Peter Figueroa( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This chapter provides a historical review of the development of education for a multicultural society in postwar Britain, particularly in England. It is based on existing literature but makes no claims to be comprehensive in coverage. Britain has long been culturally diverse and characterized both racism and by antiracist forces and democratic ideals. As with social issues of any significance, there is scarcely an issue of any importance related to the education of a multicultural society that has not been contested, as a review of the historical developments in multicultural education demonstrates. Among the many opponents of multicultural education have been antiracists who have condemned the failures of multicultural education to attack racism directly. There is no inherent conflict between the two approaches, and one of the objectives of future educational strategies should be integrating the two approaches to educational reform.

The effects of self-selected music on time to exhaustion and rate of perceived exertion in female and male runners by Tammy Burden( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine if listening to self selected music while running on a treadmill would have an effect on time to exhaustion and RPE in male and female runners. SUBJECTS: Seventeen volunteers, 6 males (x age = 25.7 + 4.0) and 11 females (x age = 21.7 + 1.3) between the ages of 18 and 35 participated in this study. Subjects had no lower extremity injury with in the last 6 months, ran 6 miles a week, and had treadmill experience. METHODS: Subjects were randomly assigned to either the music or no music test condition. All subjects were tested under both conditions three days apart. The test began with a 2 minute warm-up at 3 mph and 0% grade. The speed was increased 1 mph each minute until 80% - 85% of maximal predicted heart rate was reached. Time recording and music began when the subject maintained this heart rate for 21 seconds. The speed remained constant. RPE was recorded at one minute intervals until volitional exhaustion was reached. A 2-5 minute cool down at 3 mph and 0% grade was performed when volitional exhaustion was reached. ANALYSIS: A repeated measures ANOVA revealed a significant increase in RPE level. A Fisher Protected t LSD multiple comparisons revealed that RPE scores significantly increased throughout the test. No significant difference was found between gender and RPE level. A second ANOVA revealed significantly longer times to exhaustion when subjects ran with music than without music. No significant difference was found between male and female subjects with respect to time to exhaustion. CONCLUSION: Listening to self selected music while exercising prolongs a subject's time to exhaustion. Self selected music has no effect on RPE values reported by male and female subjects. Using music in clinical settings may increase motivation and performance
