One-third of children in UK 'have heard racist comments at school'

29th September 2020

A survey commissioned by The Diana Award has found that approximately a third of students aged between six-15 years have heard someone be racist at school.

The research also found that young people living in more diverse areas were more likely to have heard racist comments. Nearly 50% of schoolchildren said that they had been bullied at some point, leaving some of them anxious about school.

This article could be used for the Education unit (racism).
