- "Education in Indigenous, Nomadic and Travelling Communities provides a thorough examination of up-to-date case studies of educational provision to travelling communities and indigenous people in their homeland or in host countries. Education is usually under-utilised during phases of transition. In many instances, indigenous groups and travelling people, including nomads, do not have educational opportunities equal to that of their settled counterpart-citizens of their country resulting in early school leaving, high school drop-out rates, low school attendance and low success rates resulting in such groups beginning their working life at an early age and finding difficulty penetrating the formal employment arena. In this volume international researchers analyse the internal and external factors affecting educational provision to travelling, nomadic and indigenous groups. Global case studies including the Roma people in Europe; indigenous groups in Malaysia; the nomadic tribes of Afghanistan as well as the Amazonian Indians of Latin America enable a comparative examination of the issues"-- Provided by publisher.
