Racism in Children's Lives book. A Study of Mainly-white Primary Schools. ByBarry Troyna, Richard Hatcher. From these conversations they present a fascinating study of how ‘race’ emerges for young children as a plausible explanatory framework for incidents in their everyday lives. The final picture is both disturbing in its demonstration of how significant racism is and hopeful in showing how frequently anti-racist attitudes exist even in the thinking of children who engage in racist behaviour. A final chapter looks at how school policy can combat racism and build on these positive elements.

Troyna, Barry; Hatcher, Richard. This study of how race emerges for young children as a plausible explanatory framework for incidents in their everyday lives is based on a school term of observation in each of 3 British urban elementary schools, with over 150 hours of interviews with students, ages 10 and 11 years, in their last 2 years of primary (elementary) schooling. All three schools have minority populations, largely Asian and Afro-Caribbean, from 12 to 25 percent. Nine case studies illustrate responses of individual children.

In this book, Troyna and Hatcher provide convincing evidence that British schoolchildren, Blackl and White alike, are grappling with racism, even in predominantly White schools where few minorities are present. Noting that many adults assume children to be immune from racist motives or beliefs, this book demonstrates otherwise. It also identifies, in the children's own words, children's ideas about social and racial equality-some of which, if nurtured by school people, families, and political leaders, hold great promise for developing and supporting more just communities.

Both teachers and the general public have traditionally been unwilling to acknowledge that ideas of `race' might play a part in the lives of primary school children. This book, based on extensive interviews with black and white children in their last two years of primary schooling is a fascinating study of how `race' emerges for young children as a plausible explanatory framework for incidents in their everyday lives and as a possible weapon in the perpetual power struggles of the primary school world. The final picture is both disturbing in its demonstration of how significant racism is in the lives of white children and hopeful in showing how frequently anti-racist attitudes exist even in the thinking of children who engage in racist behaviour. A final chapter looks at how school policy can combat racism and build on these positive elements. This book should be of interest to primary teachers and students of race at all levels, educational management and professionals in education.
