Event description

Description

Multicultural schools are a fact and so is racism and discrimination of minorities in our society. What teachers do everyday in their classrooms and what they are told they should be doing through policies is often debated. Ania Byerly, PhD student with the University of Edinburgh, examines teacher attitudes to diversity and looks for examples of practice where all children are encouraged to be open, kind, ready to be citizens of the world, questioning and critical of prejudice and discrimination they all see daily in their lives. Ania believes school is not only for teaching children how to read and write and confront this view with those of primary teachers themselves.

Join Ania in discussing ideas and approaches towards creating a fairer Scotland. Let's make this PhD in an Hour event as multicultural as our schools!
