Overview

Traveller students are among the most underachieving ethnic and cultural minority group. The issues surrounding their low access, attainment and attendance in schools have been well rehearsed but the reports and research have merely posed questions.

This book identifies where good practice has been achieved and how, drawing on the breadth of professionalism and effectiveness now existing in Traveller Education. The contributors describe examples of successful work with Traveller pupils in and around the classroom. They 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 techologies.

This collection will be invaluable to those working in education as providers, trainers or in related professional fields.
