With over 35,000 asylum-seeking and refugee children, British schools are facing considerable challenges and dilemmas. Many schools are offering support in the context of increasingly negative and restrictive government policies.
Mapping the Field describes some of the successful initiatives and shows how provision for refugee children can be made effective. The book examines the psychological adaptation of refugee children and young people; the educational experience of older refugee students; induction practice; positive strategies to combat racism and xenophobia; home/school liaison; supporting unaccompanied refugee children.
For anyone concerned with issues of immigration and refugees in schools.
