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.

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.

The primacy of education in development agendas is unquestioned. With the gradual acknowledgement of the potential benefits that migration can hold for development, the relationship between migration and education is a growing area of research. Migration, Education and Socio-Economic Mobility explores how the decisions people make in terms of both their migration choices and educational investments, mediated as they are by gender, class, caste and nationality, can potentially contribute to earning incomes, building social and symbolic capital, or reshaping gender relations, all elements contributing to the process of economic and social mobility. Much of the existing literature examining the links between migration and education focuses either on the investment of migrant remittances in the education of their children back home or on ‘brain drain’ that refers to the migration of skilled workers from the developing to the developed world. Most of these discussions are firmly rooted in materialist arguments and while undeniably important, tend to underplay the social processes through which migration and education interact to shape people’s lives, identities and status in society. Along with economic security, people also aspire to social mobility and status enhancement. The ideas presented in this book take a more varied and nuanced view of the relationship between education and migration. This book was originally published as a special issue of Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education.

Over the last twenty-five years there has been an unprecedented expansion of opportunity for Traveller and Gypsy children to attend school. Educational outreach services have developed in parallel with an increased willingness on the part of parents to put their children into school. Cathy Kiddle has studied the effects of this expansion on the lives of the children. Having worked with Travellers and schools for over twenty years, she is well placed to consider the interactions between children, parents and schools. She examines particularly the parent/teacher relationship and the effect this has on the education of the children. The book looks at education in the context of several distinct travelling groups including Circus, Fairground and New Travellers. While recognising the importance of literacy for their children, many Gypsy Travellers fear that schooling will contribute to the disintegration of their culture, strongly based as it is on family education and supportive kinship networks. Teachers, on the other hand, may have stereotyped ideas of who Gypsies are, and may have their own expectations and demands of children in school. Cathy Kiddle examines the ways in which minority groups are forced to adapt to the changing society around them. She argues that education is important for Traveller children in that it enables them to develop into independent learners and, through this, independent people, able to speak for themselves, make considered choices and act as agents in their own lives. Essentially, her study is optimistic: if parents and teachers are prepared to understand and co-operate with each other, education will help to destroy the marginalisation of Traveller cultures, not the cultures themselves. The children will be able to give their communities a voice for themselves.

Over the past decade, interest in Gypsies, Roma and Travellers (GRT) has risen up the political and media agendas, but they remain relatively unknown. This topical book is the first to chart the history and contemporary developments in GRT community activism, and the community and voluntary organisations and coalitions which support it. Underpinned by radical community development and equality theories, it describes the communities' struggle for rights against a backdrop of intense intersectional discrimination across Europe, and critiques the ambivalent role of community development in fostering these campaigns. Much of it co-written by community activists, it is a vehicle for otherwise marginalised voices, and an essential resource and inspiration for practitioners, lecturers, researchers and members of GRT communities.

We still know remarkably little about the work of the teachers of Traveller children. Yet they help families gain access to schooling from preschool on, they work with class teachers to include Traveller pupils, they develop appropriate books and resources, and in their support of mobile pupils' learning they are leaders in the application of the latest technologies. This book describes what these teachers do and how they do it. It also reveals how they feel about their work and their relationships with the Traveller families and the wide range of professionals their work involves. In qualitative interviews, 26 heads of service and teachers in nineteen English Traveller Education Support Services (TESS) reflect on their professional and personal identities and the strategies they use to maximise the learning outcomes of Traveller children. The Services range from metropolitan to rural areas to the industrial midlands; some participants had worked in Traveller education for decades and some were new to the field. Each chapter deals with a vital element of the work of TESS heads of service and teachers. They discuss legislation and Traveller sites; government and local authorities; working with the families; working in the schools; and their innovative educational practice in literacy, and in technology to support mobile pupils. The implications of all this for teachers' practice and professional development are made clear. "Teaching Traveller Children" is essential reading for Travellers, TESSs, teachers, policy makers and researchers interested in understanding what influences TESS staff members' identities, and the approaches they found to work effectively in this complex and challenging field. The book makes a significant and original contribution to both Traveller education scholarship and research into teachers' work.
