A Reading and Discussion
Breathing the Same Air:
Children, Schools, and Politics in Northern Ireland
Abigail McNamee
Abigail McNamee is Professor of Child Development - and Chair of Early Childhood and Childhood Education at Lehman College. She is author of numerous academic works, as well as plays, children’s books, and poetry.
Abby has always been intrigued by - and respectful of - the stories children tell. Adults sometimes don’t hear - and if heard, don’t listen carefully to - these stories, which sometimes come spontaneously, sometimes wait for the asking.
Understandably, the long discord in Northern Ireland between the Protestant and Catholic communities has engendered many stories.
Breathing the Same Air: Children, Schools, and Politics in Northern Ireland focuses on stories of the integrated education movement, the context in which it began and continues to develop - and an American researcher’s experience as she learned of these stories.
It relates how the common goal of integrated education has brought Protestant and Catholic children together in schools to foster an atmosphere of mutual respect and understanding. Integrated schools stress commonalities – rather than what divides - these two communities.
