Events in the last couple of weeks, such as the murder of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter demonstrations, have caused a heightened focus and interest in the topic of anti-racism across the world and in the UK. These events have refreshed enthusiasm for change and in Haringey, 130 people joined a local NEU Zoom meeting to discuss the anti-racist curriculum. We believe it is necessary to take this opportunity to provoke meaningful change now in the institutions in which we teach and work. Our community of staff working in schools is no stranger to the ways in which inequality, prejudice and generations of colonial education affect the lives of BAME students and members of staff, and thus it is our duty to draw attention to this, oppose it and counter it by creating more progressive alternatives. As Angela Davis said, ‘In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.’ We know that racism exists beyond the curriculum and is pervasive in many other areas of school life including behaviour management, career progression, parental relations, etc. It is crucial that we set the wheels of motion now and make sure we keep our community accountable. To this end, we have put the following resources together to support NEU members and other allies, in calling their school/college to action.
