British Schools 

& the Black

 Child: New

Conversations

8th March, 2014

Birmingham
Hosted by the Center for Research on Race in Education, School of Education, University of Birmingham

 

Diane Abbott MP set up the London Schools and the Black Child (LSBC) initiative 10 years ago and for a decade the initiative has organised, researched and campaigned about the manner in which the British education system fails black children.
 
LSBC has worked with the black community both here and overseas to highlight and challenge educational inequality. Since LSBC began we have seen improvements in educational outcomes for black children. We know that with the right support and opportunities our children can break down the stereotypes and rank amongst the very best in the country.

But the discourse on equity and social justice in education has become “colourblind” at a time when the student demographic profile has never been more diverse. Together with the fundamental changes currently occurring in the education system, the danger is that hard won programs for black children will be lost.
We need to create a new narrative to make sure black children, black parents and black educators are heard and not left behind.  This conference will provide an opportunity for pupils, teachers, parents, academics and community groups to discuss how to navigate this new educational landscape.
 


Topics of discussion include:
Exclusions, managed moves and pupil referral units
Developing young leaders
Challenges in further and higher education
Policy changes implications for black students and educators
Ground breaking examples of preventative work
It takes a Village - real Head teachers talking
Black girls, identity and culture

*This event is free and open to all however places are strictly limited and all individuals must register to attend. 
(*Children are welcome, childcare however will not be provided)



DEADLINE: Monday 3rd March
