Somalis have settled in the UK in significant numbers, yet Somali children’s schooling needs have been largely ignored. Only Mohamed Kahin’s Educating Somali Children in Britain, published in 1997, offered insights and information to those responsible for their educational provision. In this new book, completed by Professor Catherine Wallace after his death, Kahin explores the ways Somali parents can optimize the achievement of their children in UK schools. His findings are relevant to other minority groups, and to families in global societies of increasingly diverse ethnic, class and cultural backgrounds.
