About this Event

If the education sector, government and OFSTED all agree that most of these new academies are delivering excellent standards of education and these schools can be confidently labelled as 'outstanding' schools, why are African, Caribbean and Mixed Race children underachieving in larger numbers than ever before? When a Black child is excluded from a school that has 'outstanding' status, what does that say about the child and their parents?

Neil Mayers, former Headteacher, education consultant and author of the classic 'Gifted At Primary, Failing By Secondary', explodes some of the myths surrounding these new academies as well as providing practical and proven strategies of success for children of all backgrounds. In this online Zoom lecture he will cover:

  • How he got his students to teach themselves and still pass their exams with 'A' stars two years ahead of schedule
  • How teachers who get outstanding results can be hounded out of the system
  • 10 things parents can do to improve their child's performance
  • Light skin supremacy in the classroom, how it works
  • How learning Black history improves, English, Mathematics and Science results
  • How to spot a racist school
  • US charter schools and UK Academies what's the difference ?

'I would just like to say a huge thanks to Black History Walks for Saturday's talk, Sex and Race in the Learning Space: 'Outstanding Academies' ? Secrets of English schools revealed. The information the speaker, Neil Mayers, shared on academies was invaluable and should be considered by all parents. I found Neil's suggestions, observations and tips extremely practical, based in part no doubt because of his experience as a secondary school teacher.

I do hope that this talk will be repeated to give more parents (and teachers) the chance to hear this invaluable information firsthand.'
