Race and Education

Race and education
Nasima Hassan


This chapter addresses the issue of race in education through reference to historic and current research. It traces government initiatives from the 1960s to manage the post-war migration and the presence of black and minority (BME) pupils and to combat racism in schools. The political dimension to race in society and the current political response to migration from eastern Europe are considered. Wider issues associated with BME pupils in the classroom are reviewed through an exploration of race and identity. A discussion of race and achievement draws together conclusions as reflected in the experiences of black pupils in inner London schools, which are similar to other geographical locations in the UK.
