Abstract

Itinerant groups are among the most marginalized communities in the world, and their educational provision remains a low priority in most countries. The chapters in this issue examine the educational opportunities of six types of itinerant people - nomadic pastoralists, migrant fishermen, fairground/showground children, Gypsy Travellers, barge people and circus people - in six countries - Nigeria, India, Scotland, England, the Netherlands, and Australia. The authors address three questions in relation to specific groups in particular countries: What contexts frame educational provision for itinerant groups? How does current research understand and evaluate that provision? How does that research help to map and celebrate international diversity in Traveller and nomadic education?
