The forsaken lover; white words and black people by Chris Searle( Book )
10 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 497 libraries worldwide
Drawing upon his own experience as an English Teacher in a secondary school in Tobago (the Caribbean), the author focuses upon the deep problems of identity encountered by black people having to use the white man's language. In using the white man's language, the black is denied his true autonomy and through his educational process within a white cultural context is made to believe that to succeed, the black must become as white as possible. Through the use of the children's own writing--poetry, prose, drama--and by referring to their words, the author urges the need for change in policies and attitudes of language and education. The protective response of some children who write "Black is Beautiful" across the cover of their English literature exercise books is, according to the author, plainly the most apt and hopeful comment the black can make in our present educational context.

An exclusive education : race, class and exclusion in British schools by Chris Searle( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
"The exclusion of pupils from schools is a hotly contested issue in contemporary British education, and former headteacher Chris Searle is at the heart of current debate. Searle is a passionate advocate of inclusive education, arguing that it is a key task of any school to actively work for the full inclusive motivation of all its students: excluding pupils is not an acceptable educational option, particularly since a disproportionate percentage of those excluded are black and working class." "The book provides statistical information, together with many case studies of wrongly excluded children. It also describes the attacks made on Searle when he instituted a no permanent exclusion policy as a headteacher in Sheffield." "Searle's view is that exclusions are symptomatic of a wider culture of structural exclusion, and he puts forward alternative policies for dealing with disaffected students. Such policies should be based on strong community participation, and a recognition that feelings of demotivation are often caused be an irrelevant and culturally exclusive curriculum."--Jacket

Outcast England : how schools exclude black children by Jenny Bourne( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
The number of black children "excluded" each month from schools in England and Wales is greatly out of proportion to their relative enrollment. Exclusion includes suspension for a fixed or indefinite term or expulsion from a particular school, and can include in-school exclusions of isolation. The term "black children" is taken to include various groups of color, including Asians. Exclusion is seldom the measure of a child's capacity to learn, rather it is usually an indication of the teacher's refusal to be challenged. The exclusion of the black child is regarded as an element in the pathology of the black family rather than as an indicator of structured racism. How the situation developed is traced, and new government policies designed to educate the excluded child are reviewed. Exclusion is shown to be related to the current government's overall education reforms. Individual case studies illustrate exclusion, as it may reflect cultural and racial bias. There is no simple solution, but the government must take a lead in implementing revised policies. (Sld)
