Project Title and Brief Description, including publication details / link if available

Scottish primary school teachers and their teaching of anti-racism in practice. The study was a self-funded PhD, completed. It found different levels of enactment of national policy (the Equality Act 2008, 2010, Curriculum for Excellence, the Public Sector Equality Duty) across local government and school levels, with individual teachers only undertaking such work if they have personal experience of difference (for example, living in another country, speaking other languages, having friends or neighbours who were minority ethnic); and if they have explicit support and encouragement from their Head teachers. The study also found little regard to the Equality Duty at the local authority level, with minimal translation of national policy to local policy levels. Any and all such work is only done at the level of individual class teachers and guidance, such as Race Equality Plans etc. (in most cases non-existent) is not helpful, not used and not relevant.

I am happy to engage further with the SG if needed.
