Originally published in 1992. This book presents research carried out by the author in four inner-city primary schools. It documents the experiences of black and Asian children, particularly in interaction with their white peers, and with their teachers, from both observation and interviews with parents, teachers and the children. It presents cases both inside and outside the classroom.

The children’s academic progress is also examined, and the book considers the link between home and school. The concluding chapter is concerned with measures for promoting ‘good practice’ in the primary school context.
