Murphy, Phyllis (1998) The educational experience of traveller children in the Northside Partnership Area: a consultation report for Northside Partnership and Pavee Point. Dublin, Dublin: Pavee Point Travellers Resource Centre, Northside Partnership.

This report was commissioned by Northside Partnership and Pavee Point as a review of the educational experience of Traveller children in the Northside Partnership area. The rationale for the report was based on the the need for a cohesive, multi-dimensional strategy to ensure effective intervention into the serious educational disadvantage of young Travellers. The research was carried out through consultation with Traveller parents by exploring their, and their children's, experiences of participation in education. Education service providers were also consulted. The report makes specific recommendations to the Department of Education, Science and Technology; Northside Partnership; Local Traveller Development Groups; Traveller parents and schools to progress primary education for Traveller children; both in the Partnership area and nationally.
