Report into Racist Attitudes and Perceptions amongst School Students at Royton and Crompton School, Oldham and Summative Statement of Anti-Racist Report.
Beckingham, Bryan; Taylor, Priti
This report examines student attitudes toward race relations at an English Comprehensive School, among students ages 11-16. The school is predominantly white working class with an enrollment of 1200 and less than 5% ethnic minority population. A series of 13 questions were developed, with an interview plan, reply recording sheets, timetable for interviews, parental permission letter, interview request slip and the final report. The selection of students to be interviewed was made on a statistical methodology, interviewing half of the ethnic population across years 7-10, male and female of various abilities based on their mathematics sets, and matched with "equivalent" white students. The interview process averaged about fifteen minutes per student. Tables and graphs present the findings of the survey responses. Suggestions are given as to how to help minority students feel they are a component of the school community. (EH)
