Multiracial Education: Need and Innovation. The Preliminary Report of the Schools Council Education for a Multiracial Society Project.
Townsend, H. E. R.; Brittan, E. M.
A major project of research and development in education for a multiracial society running from April 1973 to December 1976 is designed to produce materials in support of the education of all pupils for life in a multiracial Britain. The project has the further aim of offering supporting materials to teachers in multiracial schools. However, at the end of four years' development the materials might prove unacceptable to teachers, or might have already been in use in parts of our decentralized education system. For these reasons, the Schools Council agreed to commission a preliminary short survey to take place from September 1972 to March 1973 to investigate teachers' views as to syllabuses and the need for development, and to identify current innovation in this aspect of education. This publication reports the findings of this brief project. The sample of schools used in the survey was composed of six types of school: in authorities with less than 300 immigrant pupils in January 1971, 50 non-multiracial primary schools, 50 non-multiracial secondary schools; in authorities with at least 500 immigrant pupils in January 1971, 50 non-multiracial primary and 50 non-multiracial secondary schools, and 150 multiracial primary and 150 multiracial secondary schools.
