This book offers a fascinating yet disturbing account of the significance of racism in the lives of five and six year old children, drawing upon data from an in-depth study of an inner-city, multi-ethnic primary school and its surrounding community. It represents one of the only detailed studies to give primacy to the voices of the young children themselves - giving them the space to articulate their own experiences and concerns. Together with detailed observation of the children in the school and local community, it provides an important account of how and why they draw upon discourses on race in the development of their gender identities. The book graphically highlights the understanding that these children have of issues of race, gender and sexuality and the active role they play in using and reworking this knowledge to make sense of their experiences.

Schulische Realitäten in Migrationsgesellschaften werden durch Mehrsprachigkeit konstituiert. Ob es Schulen gelingt, auf die zunehmend bedeutsamer werdende Herausforderung der Mehrsprachigkeit ihrer Schülerinnen und Schüler angemessene Antworten zu finden, hängt nicht nur von Fragen der Didaktik und der Schulentwicklung ab. Die in diesem Buch versammelten Beiträge zeigen, dass es für Reformen zudem erforderlich ist, mit allen Beteiligten zu einer Reflexion und Veränderung der Macht- und Dominanzverhältnisse zu gelangen, die in der Schule und in der Einwanderungsgesellschaft wirken. Ein Blick auf Großbritannien gibt hierfür theoretische wie praktische Anregungen. In acht Kommentaren deutscher Autorinnen und Autoren werden Erfahrungen und Positionen aus dem englischsprachigen Raum vor dem Hintergrund der Situation in Deutschland betrachtet und Problemen und Chancen der mehrsprachigen Schulen diskutiert. Die Texte aus Grossbritanien machen deutlich, dass bildungspolitische Entwicklungen innerhalb eines Schulsystems keineswegs homogen sind, sondern partiell höchst widersprüchlich sein können, und dass die im Bildungssystem Tätigen zweisprachige Kinder und Jugendliche erst dann wirkungsvoll unterstützen können, wenn sie den Blick auch auf diese Widersprüche richten.

Heterogentität wird zunehmend als zentrales Thema für die Schul- und Unterrichtsforschung benannt, wobei der Begriff auf sehr unterschiedliche Weise verstanden und eingesetzt wird. Ziel dieses Bandes ist es, Beiträge zu theoretischen und empirischen Konzeptionierungen von Heterogenität zu sammeln, die sich jenseits von affirmativer Verwendung oder Praxisorientierung grundlegend mit Konstruktionen des Begriffs im schulischen Umfeld beschäftigen.

From youth culture to adolescent sexuality to the consumer purchasing power of children en masse, studies are flourishing. Yet doing research on this unquestionably more vulnerable—whether five or fifteen—population also poses a unique set of challenges and dilemmas for researchers. How should a six-year-old be approached for an interview? What questions and topics are appropriate for twelve year olds? Do parents need to give their approval for all studies? In Representing Youth, Amy L. Best has assembled an important group of essays from some of today’s top scholars on the subject of youth that address these concerns head on, providing scholars with thoughtful and often practical answers to their many methodological concerns. These original essays range from how to conduct research on youth in ways that can be empowering for them, to issues of writing and representation, to respecting boundaries and to dealing with issues of risk and responsibility to those interviewed. For anyone doing research or working with children and young adults, Representing Youth offers an indispensable guide to many of the unique dilemmas that research with kids entails. Contributors include: Amy L. Best, Sari Knopp Biklen, Elizabeth Chin, Susan Driver, Marc Flacks, Kathryn Gold Hadley, Madeline Leonard, C.J. Pascoe, Rebecca Raby, Alyssa Richman, Jessica Taft, Michael Ungar, Yvonne Vissing, and Stephani Etheridge Woodson.

You Wouldn't Understand looks at how white teachers regard ethnic diversity in their classrooms and how their views affect their teaching. It tells the story of one white teacher's developing understanding of how her own racial and ethnic background influenced the way she regarded and taught the mainly South Asian Muslim children in her classes. She began with a belief that the narrowness of the National Curriculum was the problem for the pupils but she came to see the bigger picture. The book charts her gradual realisation that many of the problems lay with her own lack of understanding of race, racism, and her own racial identity.The book explores the idea of whiteness as not a biological but a social construction, one which influences white people's ways of seeing the world in often unnoticed ways. The author relates whiteness to aspects of her own behaviour, which she recorded in a diary over five years. The book also considers the children's struggles to construct and understand their own emerging identities in this environment, and the views of several other white teachers, some of whom shared the author's confusion and doubts, and others who were more confident about teaching in culturally diverse classrooms.This searching analysis of the innards of whiteness and its effect on how white teachers approach pupils who are not white is illuminating and important. It should be required reading for all teacher trainers and all white trainee teachers, and also for white managers and teachers working in multiethnic schools.
