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.

Anthropologists George and Sharon Gmelch have been studying the quasi-nomadic people known as Travellers since their fieldwork in the early 1970s, when they lived among Travellers and went on the road in their own horse-drawn wagon. In 2011 they returned to seek out families they had known decades before—shadowed by a film crew and taking with them hundreds of old photographs showing the Travellers' former way of life. Many of these images are included in this book, alongside more recent photos and compelling personal narratives that reveal how Traveller lives have changednow that they have left nomadism behind.

First published in 1997, this study is an attempt to read and critique answers to that question, answers offered in policy and provision, and answers to those answers, in talk and texts, and in classroom performances, an often fraught ‘conversation’ which goes on in spirals.

Moving on from the acclaimed "Spanner in the Works", a new team in Cumbria describes how teachers in white areas can challenge attitudes and help children develop respect for diversity, understanding of interdependence and skills of openness and acceptance. It tackles the hard issues of negative perceptions and prejudice. Since the first "Spanner in the Works" appeared in 1990, a good deal has changed: the school curriculum, the duty on schools imposed by the Race Relations Amendment Act, the even greater need for antiracist education in these troubled times, and the challenges this creates. "Another Spanner" responds to all this, and also to the negative changes caused by the mutual mistrust and fear between different cultures and countries. It offers a mix of stories of effective practice in white schools, and practical sections on, for instance, uncovering the attitudes held by teachers, governors, support staff and children and their perceptions of other countries. Like its predecessor, it will have relevance in white areas far beyond Cumbria.
