In an increasingly multicultural and multi-religious society, Islam and Education in Ireland is a timely examination of the issues surrounding Muslims and education in Ireland today.
Beginning with an overview of the history and culture of Islam, Dr Ali Selim highlights the challenges met by Muslims in the Irish education system, providing solutions that promote equality and integration in an ever-changing society.
This book is suitable for teachers, students, school counsellors, members of boards of management and anyone who has an interest in Islam, facilitating its integration in Irish education, and its place in modern Irish society.
