Moving Forward: Students and teachers against racism
Racism in education is one of the key issues facing schools, communities and the nation. Racism is about the exercise of power by individuals, groups and communities against each other. Whatever form it takes, racism has great potential to hurt and to harm. This book tells a series of stories from 11 very different government and non-government schools in Queensland. These stories show the positive measures that are being taken in schools to promote harmony, respect, understanding and fairness between school members, and with people in the community. The stories offer a simple lesson: solutions to racism must be local solutions. They must be culturally appropriate and relevant to specific communities. There is no single solution. However, this book shows that, through a mixture of strategies, students, teachers, schools and communities can make a difference, influencing the school and community culture and improving the educational outcomes and life chances of students of diverse backgrounds.
