The Schooling and Identity of Asian Girls
Farazana Shain challenges western misconceptions and stereotypes of young Asian women. Through an analysis of Asian girls' experiences, she reassesses the role that schooling can play in shaping the identities of young people. The book draws on an empirical study with Muslim, Hindu and Sikh schoolgirls of Pakistani, Indian and Bangladeshi descent in 2 regions of England. It demonstrates that they are far from being passive victims of static cultures but are instead actively involved in creating and recreating identities that re-work the residual cultures of the home and the regional cultures they now inhabit. The book concludes by suggesting how teachers can use their new understandings to improve their professional practice.
