I ended the day at the "Challenging Racism Together" event that my colleague Rehana Minhas had organised with the Trade Unions...

Colleagues who had attended the day talked about the impact of the sessions and the impact of the workshops they had attended. The real challenge for us all is how we reach the colleagues who didn't attend and how we spread the messages and together eliminate racism from all our classrooms, staffrooms, schools and workplaces. We need to take forward the learning from the Morley experiment where schools worked together to tackle racism, to adopt the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard and to work as a community to build trust, respect, tolerance and understanding.

What are you doing to challenge racism in your classroom, your school or your community?
