Racial inequalities in the UK educational system have persisted for too long. The issue of underachievement and those related to it must be addressed. It is vital to ensure all children are able to learn, achieve, progress and make the transition to further education, higher education or the labour market.
ATL supports the view that education is a basic human right. It is imperative that the UK meets its obligation under the United Nations covenants to provide education for all children. The Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 aims to enable the UK to achieve this.
This publication will enable teachers and schools to fulfil their valuable role in promoting good race relations between people of different racial groups, and help schools meet their legal obligations under the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000. It is in the interests of society, our economy and our country that our schools enable all our children to have a good start in life and become active citizens.
