In this episode we discuss private schools versus state schools, diversifying our understanding of blackness past sports and entertainment and celebrating black excellence.
In this series, Your stories, Your words, we speak to members of the black community about their relationship with the British education system. In giving a platform to parents, mentors, teachers, children and young adults, we aim to show how isolated incidents and stories belong to a wider and more problematic narrative of prejudice and racism. Through these conversations we hope to create far more transparency in the experiences and struggles of educating black children in Britain. This series will cover primary school, secondary school, home schooling, SEN support, local councils, bullying and many more topics.
