|Equalities in Education|
The papers in this collection are to do with countering racist bullying in schools, within the wider contexts of promoting race equality and countering bullying more generally. They can be used as handouts in staff training sessions and discussions, and some can be incorporated into staff handbooks and local authority guidance documents. Also, some of them can be adapted into materials for use with learners in classrooms.
Most of the folder was compiled in connection with Anti-Bullying Week, November 2005. Later, following substantial consultation, the folder was revised and much expanded and was posted on the Teachernet website at the Department for Education and Skills.
