How do you recognise a racist incident? What should you do if one of your pupils uses a racist term? How can you promote better race relations in your school?
The new Race Equality resource helps teachers answer these questions and tackle the problem of racism in schools. The website clarifies what racism means in Scottish society today and identifies a wide range of racist behaviour. By looking at the effect racism has on victims and the broader community, it explores the role that schools can play in discouraging racist behaviour and dealing with it appropriately when it happens.
A selection of anti-racist teaching materials have been developed to encourage children to understand the history of Scotland’s diverse society, the difficulties faced by immigrants today, the causes and devastating effects of racism, and the importance of racial tolerance.
The new site supports the Scottish Government’s One Scotland campaign to tackle racist attitudes in Scotland.
