  • How are 'race' and racism implicated in education policy and practice?
  • What does effective antiracism look like in practice?
  • How can teachers and school students be encouraged to think critically about their racialized assumptions and actions?
In exploring these questions David Gillborn makes a vital contribution to the debate on 'race' and racism in education.He focuses on racism in the policy, research, theory and practice of education, and includes the first major study of antiracism at the level of whole-school management and classroom practice.The voices of teachers and school students bring the issues to life, and illustrate the daily problems of life in urban schools.This is a fascinating picture of the key matters facing managers, classroom teachers and their students as schools struggle to develop strong and workable approaches to anti-racist education.It is accompanied by a critical review of current debates and controversies concerning 'race', ethnicity and identity.

Arguing for a critical return to the concept of 'race', Racism and Antiracism in Real Schools represents an important addition to the literature on the theory and practice of education in a racist society.

"The value of David Gillborn's book is its comprehensive examination of the theoretical discussion surrounding race, racism, anti-racism as understood currently and the relevance of this discussion to education...Gillborn captures the complexity, contingency and shifting nature of both the theory and practice which attempts to complement it in this important book." - Education Today and Tomorrow. "Gillborn's accessible and well-written book attemptsto move beyond some of the strictures and antagonisms of the 1980s antiracist/multicultural paradign war." - Sociology. "...a welcome return to problems and issues that just refuse to go away no matter how much debate becomes concentrated around thenational curriculum, education vouchers and selection, private finance andcompounded by the winding down of Section 11 funding." - Local Government Studies. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
