More than half of BAME teachers face racism in schools

According to TES, more than half of teachers from minority-ethnic groups have experienced racism in schools in the past year, according to a new poll.

The union asked more than 400 BAME teachers from across the UK about the challenges they face in schools.

Nearly half (46 per cent) were not confident about reporting racial discrimination, racial bullying or racial harassment to their employer because of lack of support.

A zero tolerance policy on racism, together with anti-racism inspections and stronger government regulations, were deemed the most important priorities for ensuring that racist attitudes and behaviours are eliminated in schools and colleges.
