Gypsy Travellers and education: changing needs and changing perceptions
Bhopal, Kalwant (2004) Gypsy Travellers and education: changing needs and changing perceptions. British Journal of Educational Studies, 52, (1), 47-64. (doi:10.1111/j.1467-8527.2004.00254.x).
This article explores Gypsy Travellers’ changing views on their children’s education. It highlights the positive means some schools use to encourage greater involvement of Gypsy Traveller parents. It argues that current educational policy needs to be re-developed to incorporate more effective and affirmative responses to interrupted and nomadic learning. It draws heavily on interviews with Gypsy Traveller families in an effort to give ‘voice’ to an under-represented community.
