    Adolescent Discourse on National Identity‐‐Voices of Care and Justice? [1].Bruce Carrington & Geoffrey Short - 1998 - Educational Studies 24 (2):133-152.
    Summary In her highly publicised polemic, All Must Have Prizes (1996), Melanie Phillips launches a scathing attack upon the British educational establishment and various facets of policy and practice during the past three decades. She is especially critical of progressivism and approaches to teaching and learning supposedly predicated upon relativist principles (e.g. multicultural education). Our own research on primary?school children's constructions of British identity (Carrington, B. & Short, G. (1995): What makes a person British? Children's conceptions of their national culture (...)

    What Makes a Person British? Children's Conceptions of Their National Culture and Identity.Bruce Carrington & Geoffrey Short - 1995 - Educational Studies 21 (2):217-238.
    Summary During the past decade, the cultural restorationist wing of the New Right has sought to impose its own anachronistic and sentimental conception of ?British culture? on schools and colleges. This conception, which is little more than a glib celebration of quintessential ?Englishness?, characterises the national culture in largely monolithic and ethnically undifferen?tiated terms. Concerned about the possible pernicious effects of educational policies inspired by such thinking, we present the findings of a recently completed ethnographic study of 8?11 year?olds? conceptions (...)

    Probing Children's Prejudice‐‐a Consideration of the Ethical and Methodological Issues Raised by Research and Curriculum Development.Bruce Carrington & Geoffrey Short - 1993 - Educational Studies 19 (2):163-179.
    Since the mid-1980s many schools in predominantly white areas have taken active steps to counter racism and ethnocentrism and raise awareness of Britain's ethnic diversity through curriculum development. This paper is primarily concerned with the ethical issues raised by research into such initiatives at primary school level. We begin by alluding very briefly to the shortcomings of extant research into children's prejudice, noting that some studies can be criticised for the unwitting reinforcement of stereotypes. We move on to examine the (...)

    Who Counts; Who Cares? Scottish Children's Notions of National Identity.Bruce Carrington & Geoffrey Short - 1996 - Educational Studies 22 (2):203-224.
    Summary Compared to the literature on children's racial and ethnic identities, relatively little is known about their understanding of national identity. Such knowledge is necessary if schools are to challenge racism, xenophobia and ethnocentrism effectively. In this paper, we present the findings of a case?study (undertaken in a mainly?white Edinburgh primary school) of 9?11 year?olds? understanding of this complex form of collective identity. Particular attention is given to age?related differences in response. Comparisons are drawn between the Scottish children's conceptions of (...)

    Unfair Discrimination: Teaching the Principles to Children of Primary School Age.Geoffrey Short & Bruce Carrington - 1991 - Journal of Moral Education 20 (2):157-176.
    This paper describes an initiative to promote social justice in two groups of primary aged children. The initiative was concerned with the extent to which first? and third?year juniors can apply principles of unfair discrimination to issues of gender,?race? and social class having been taught the principles in contexts unrelated to structural inequality. The study provides evidence consistent with the claim that children between the ages of seven and 11 can learn to recognise certain manifestations of unfair discrimination against oppressed (...)

    Antiracist Education and Moral Behaviour: Lessons From the Holocaust.Geoffrey Short - 1999 - Journal of Moral Education 28 (1):49-62.
    An assumption implicit in antiracist education is that students who learn about racism and who subsequently come to hold antiracist attitudes will tend to act in accordance with those attitudes. The existence of countervailing forces leading such students to active or passive complicity in racism seems never to have been acknowledged in antiracist literature. This lacuna is difficult to fathom in view of the interest shown by psychologists and historians of the Holocaust in bystander behaviour and conformity to the peer (...)

    Perceptions of Inequality: Primary School Children's Discourse on Social Class.Geoffrey Short - 1991 - Educational Studies 17 (1):89-106.
    This paper is concerned with the role of education in promoting social justice. It deals specifically with the development of children's understanding of social class, not because this particular form of inequality is considered more important than any other, but because of the inadequacies of extant research. It is argued that unless we know how children think about social class differentiation, we will not be able to engage effectively with their misconceptions. One hundred and sixty‐one children drawn from across the (...)

    Teaching About the Holocaust: A Consideration of Some Ethical and Pedagogic Issues.Geoffrey Short - 1994 - Educational Studies 20 (1):53-67.
    Summary The Holocaust is now part of the history curriculum for all 11?14 year?olds in maintained schools in England and Wales. This paper directs attention to some of the ethical and pedagogic issues involved in teaching the subject. In particular, concern is expressed at the dangers of teaching it in ways likely to promote anti?Semitism. Other ethical issues raised include the extent to which freedom of speech should be permitted in the classroom; the merits or otherwise of drawing children's attention (...)
