This book is a manual for planning and taking action against racism in schools. Its implementation will improve schooling for all children, not just those from ethnic minority groups.
It clearly sets out the issues, the statistics and the research that show which groups are failed by schools and why, and then moves to a range of solutions. It is compiled by leading United Kingdom experts in the field of education and race, who have consulted widely, and is certainly one of the most authoritative books available on the subject. It is designed to be photocopied
