All Books are second hand
This book speaks to one of the most challenging policy issues in public education - on how to come to terms with ethnic, religious, and cultural differences without authoritarian demands for conformity and cohesion. *** "Professor Saloshna Vandeyar brought together thirteen co-authors to present us with the most stimulating and original case studies of identity formation and negotiation in the contexts of migration and education. Processes in South African, Dutch, American Mexican, Swedish, Brazilian and German schools are scrutinized while immigrant students from very diverse origins such as the Philippines, Turkey, Central and East Africa and Singapore are studied in the way they perceive themselves in the schools and countries they now find themselves in. This excellent compilation will appeal to researchers in the fields of education, anthropology, sociology as well as ethnic and cultural studies.
