The Duty to Promote Race Equality: A Guide for Schools—A Product of the Commission for Racial Equality in the United Kingdom



View PDF

This guide was produced in response to the Race Relations Act of 1976 and to the statutory Code of Practice on the Duty to Promote Race Quality that came into effect on May 31, 2002, following approval by Parliament. The guide supports the code and was written mainly for the governing bodies of educational institutions. However, the guide also was designed to be useful for pupils, parents and guardians, community groups, contractors, partners and others. It contains five chapters, but the appendices may be the most valuable for the purposes of groups in the United States working on racial issues in the schools. These appendices:

  • Set out a framework for preparing a race equality policy, and building race equality into other policies, and
  • Give examples of how local education authorities and schools can work together.
