Ignored by curricula

As a group, mixed-race people have persistently underachieved in education. A report commissioned by the Department for Education and Skills in 2004 found that mixed children were ignored by school curricula and by school and local education authority policies on race.

Dr William Dixon a Senior Criminologist who has investigated Racial Harassment in Stoke-on-Trent and Professor Ken Jones who has worked at the Institute of Education in London and taught in a number of schools talk about the problems in education for mixed race kids and what needs to be done in 25 years.
