Overview

"The dichotomy between equality and difference is a central issue in both feminist and education debates. Georgina Tsolidis examines this dichotomy with particular reference to gender, ethnicity and schooling and argues that in the context of reformist education policies targeting gender equity and the affirmation of cultural difference, the schooling experiences of ethnic minority girls provide insights into ways of challenging this dichotomy.

The book concludes by exploring the practical implications with regard to both curriculum and pedagogy."--BOOK JACKET.
