Ethnic monitoring of Gypsy Roma Travellers since 2003 has resulted in their education becoming a national priority, supported by the National Strategies and the OFSTED inspection framework. A national network of Traveller Education Support Services works to enable Gypsy Roma Travellers to become active participants in their children's education, schools and local authorities to respond to their needs, and pupils to have continuity of education through transitions and when mobile. This book aims to provide the basic background information for anyone involved in supporting this process. The information is organised in accessible, cross-referenced sections so readers can go straight to the section most relevant to their needs.

Traveller pupils are still the most underachieving ethnic and cultural minority group. The issues surrounding their low access, attainment and attendance in schools have been rehearsed but the reports and research have merely posed questions. This book identifies where good practice has been achieved and how, and describes examples of successful work with traveller pupils in and around the classroom. It draws on current professionalism and effectiveness in Traveller Education so that practitioners will be able to adapt proven approaches. The contributors examine education and education welfare fields across all sectors of statutory provision, and consider matters ranging from core access issues to the exciting possibilities of new technologies. This collection is aimed at those working with these minority ethnic communities as providers, trainers or in related professional fields.

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.

"The eviction at Dale Farm in the UK in 2011 brought the conflicting issues relating to Gypsy and Traveller accommodation to the attention of the world's media. However, as the furore surrounding the eviction has died down, the very pressing issues of accommodation need, inequality of access to education, healthcare and employment, and exclusion from British (and European) society is still very much evident.This topical book examines and debates a range of themes facing Gypsies and Travellers in British society, including health, social policy, employment and education. It also looks at the dilemmas faced in representing disadvantaged minority groups in media and political discourse, theories on power, control and justice and the impact of European initiatives on inclusion.Gypsies and Travellers: Empowerment and inclusion in British society will be of interest to students, academics, policy makers, practitioners, those working in the media, police, education and health services, and of course to Gypsies and Travellers themselves."--Publisher's website.

Traveller, Nomadic and Migrant Education presents international accounts of approaches to educating mobile communities such as circus and fairground people, herders, hunters, Roma and Travellers. The chapters focus on three key dimensions of educational change: the client group moving from school to school; those schools having their demographics changed and seeking to change the mobile learners; and these learners contributing to fundamental change to the nature of schooling. The book brings together decades of research into the challenges and opportunities presented by mobile learners interacting with educational systems predicated on fixed residence. It identifies several obstacles to those learners receiving an equitable education, including negative stereotypes and centuries-old prejudice. Yet the book also explores a number of educational innovations that bring mobility and schooling together, ranging from specialised literacy programs and distance and online education to mobile schools and specially trained teachers. These innovations allow us to think differently about how education can and should be, for mobile and non-mobile learners alike.

We share a history, we share a memory and they both share my heart. It's that time of the year. A time that Eoin, Mary Anne and Jack all remember. Having grown up together in various care homes for the disabled, they now rely on each other in adulthood for support, friendship and love. But when young film-maker Eleanor arrives, struggling with hidden issues and agendas of her own, to make a documentary about their lives together, the examination and attention she brings threatens to disrupt the long-term relationships and friendships at the heart of their group. Mainstream is a complex drama about truth, lies and the mainstreaming of Travellers with disabilities. It was produced in November 2016 in a co-production between Fishamble Theatre Company and Project Arts Centre, Dublin.

What does inclusion really mean and what impact have inclusive approaches to education had on practice? Bringing together issues of theory, research, policy and practice from both the countries of the South and the North, this ground-breaking book provides a critical discussion of recent developments in the field of inclusive education. The authors consider developments, both in current thinking about the meaning of inclusion and in terms of policies and practices, in the context of education systems across the world and their differences and inter-relatedness. Topics covered include the increasing pressure on educators to develop a global policy agenda for inclusive education, the individual needs of children, the illusion of inclusivity and the importance of local contexts in determining policy. The book's international perspective illuminates common successes, failures and concerns. With case studies from Europe, the Caribbean and Australasia, the book also features chapter summaries, questions to facilitate critical thinking and discussion, case studies and suggestions for further reading. An essential read for anyone studying inclusive education, special educational needs, disability studies, social policy and international and comparative education, this book will ignite debate and enable the reader to develop a deep understanding of the issues. Ann Cheryl Armstrong is the Director of the Division of Professional Learning, Derrick Armstrong is Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education) and Professor of Education and Ilektra Spandagou is a Lecturer in Inclusive Education. They are all based at the University of Sydney, Australia.
