More than 115 racist incidents were recorded in Britain’s schools every day between 2007 and 2011, with four in five teachers saying they had seen pupils being abused. Data from 90 local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales shows there were almost 88,000 cases of racist bullying, which can include name calling and physical abuse. Charities and teaching unions fear the figure is just ‘the tip of the iceberg’, but a body campaigning for better standards in schools believes the number may have been ‘inflated’ because teachers felt pressured into reporting incidents which were merely playground banter.
“Better standards” = “more racism” apparently. Article
