Travellers and home education : safe spaces and inequality by Kathleen Walsh D'Arcy( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elective home education (ehe) is a legal alternative to school in England but the statutory requirements for provision are remarkably vague. This book explores the use of ehe by Gypsy and Traveller families. The accounts of their experiences and their views about education spaces reveal the racism and discrimination their children encounter in school, and how Gypsies and Travellers still lose out when they opt for ehe. The voices of Gypsies and Travellers are seldom heard. The stories they tell here give insight into the stereotypical assumptions based on the pejorative portrayals that are peddled in the media and echoed in the mainstream literature, which too often shape the scripts of the education providers. Kate D'Arcy brings the insights offered by the Travellers together with a searching analysis of ehe provision to yield valuable new understandings about inequality in education. Travellers and Home Education is essential reading for teachers and educational managers, students, academics, policy makers and for the Traveller communities. The critical appraisal of race and racism will particularly interest those who are passionate about working towards social justice
