Race and education across cultures by Gajendra K Verma( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The various scholars who contribute in the three broad sections in this volume orient their papers toward revealing the diverse forms and functions of race and education across cultures. They highlight the conditions in analyses of Britain, Australia, and the United States. The rationale behind the structure of the symposium provides a forum in which readers with different biases can discuss the issues or race relations by formulating new questions about social situations and human acts. In light of the variations involved in intergroup relations, one of the criteria in organizing the material is to focus on the possible relationships among differing racial, ethnic, and social groups in societies of the world today. In order to capture the diversity offered by the work of experts in this area, a framework in the form of brief opening passages at the beginning of each section is provided. A selected bibliography to these issues is appended to each introduction. The book neither pretends to deal with the science of race relations as a whole nor claims to settle the controversy which exists in the area of race and education. There are three biases: toward the academic approach of social psychology; towards empirical studies; and toward radical conceptualizations from these studies. The three major sections are as follows: intellect and achievement; attitudes, personality, and behavior; and curriculum studies. (Author/AM)

International perspectives on educational diversity and inclusion : studies from America, Europe and India by Gajendra K Verma( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International Perspectives on Educational Diversity and Inclusion is presenting accounts of attempts to include diverse ethnic and social groups, and children with special needs within inclusive educational systems. Different countries, all at different stages of development with contrasted minority populations, face these issues of policy and practice with varying degrees of success. The book should provide insights into modern concepts of globalization and its impact on educational policy for students of sociology, comparative education and psychology. Readers will learn how the educational inclusion of diverse ethnic and social groups has received setbacks in America, has rarely been achieved in Britain and some European countries, and is still struggling to be achieved in India."--Jacket
The ethnic crucible : harmony and hostility in multi-ethnic schools by Gajendra K Verma( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many schools in developed countries have children and adolescents from a variety of ethnic, linguistic, religious and cultural backgrounds. They relate to each other in various degrees of encounter that range from harmony to hostility. The issue of how a school can foster inter-ethnic relationships and challenge the manifestations of bad relationships cannot of course be divorced from tensions and inequalities in the wider society. This book, however, focuses on ways in which schools might make a difference to the quality of such relationships within their walls. It has sought to do this by studying nine secondary schools in some depth: their organisation, structures and interactive processes: and the experiences, attitudes and behaviour of students and their teachers. The research on which the book is based has also yielded data on the influence of policy and procedure in schools on relationships
