Do Muslim girls have access to equal educational opportunities in British schools? To what extent do issues of race and gender affect the education of Muslim girls? This important book examines the relationships between teachers (often white and non-Muslim) and their female Muslim students in two single sex schools - one an urban comprehensive, the other a private Muslim school - and explores the ways in which these relationships are affected by different educational settings and experiences. The tensions between the twin priorities of equality and difference which shape feminist discourses in education are carefully analysed. The book will be of interest to students and academics in the fields of women's studies, education, research methods and social studies.

Editorial Reviews

Within a feminist and post-structuralist theoretical framework, queries whether Muslim girls in Britain have equal educational opportunities and the extent to which issues of race and gender affect their education. Looks at the relationships between teachers, often European and non-Muslim, and their female Muslim students in two single-sex schools, one an urban comprehensive and the other a private Muslim school. Explores how those relationships are affected by different educational settings and experiences, and analyzes the tensions between the twin priorities of equality and difference that shape feminist discourse in education. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
