Education for Muslim girls in contemporary Britain: social and political dimensions
Haw, Kaye (1995) Education for Muslim girls in contemporary Britain: social and political dimensions. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This research examines how the discourses of gender, 'race ', culture and religion are articulated in the educational experiences of Muslim girls. Using the data collected in a private Muslim girls' school (old Town High) and a single-sex state school with a high proportion of Muslim girls (City State) it critically examines how stereotypical representations may come to constitute a commonsense understanding of Muslim women and how these representations can exercise an important influence in shaping teacher perceptions about the presumed needs of their Muslim students.
