Dear Colleagues,

I hope that all is well with you, and that your colleagues and also the various communities with whom you work, are well and not too badly affected by the current pandemic.

I am writing to you to locate research material related to the Education/Schooling for the occupationally mobile communities, itinerant circus, fairground/showground, carnival families in the United States, please.

My principal research interest is in the educational aspirations, opportunities and outcomes of occupationally mobile communities. To date, I have focused on itinerant circus and fairground/showground families in Australia, the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, and Venezuela, but so far I have not had an opportunity to conduct research with itinerant workers in the United States.

I am also very interested in the work and identities of the teachers and principals who work to provide formal schooling opportunities for these occupationally mobile communities. Many thanks for your time, and grateful appreciation for any suggestions that you might be able to make, please.

Sincere best wishes,

Patrick Danaher
