Students Who Are Different
There have only been a few studies that have examined the role of ethnic/cultural influences upon children’s and young people’s aggressive behaviour at school. By the same token, there have only been a few studies that have explored the school experiences of children with learning and/or motor disabilities. In this chapter, data from a number of studies are presented that suggest that children who are perceived to be ‘different’ (whether it is on the grounds of their colour or cultural background, religious beliefs, ability, or learning/motor disability) have experienced and continue to experience harassment at school. Building upon this work, the chapter then turns his attention to homophobia in educational contexts and literature that led to the series of studies that are discussed later in the book.
