This chapter in an introductory textbook on the study of education outlines concepts of 'race', including 'race' as a social construct and the move since the 1970s to use the term 'ethnic' rather than 'race'.  

Common themes for 'race' and ethnicity theory and research are identified, noting a shift toward qualitative research since the 1980s.

There is a summary of the issues around racism and exclusion, and of racist bullying.
