A Decade of Campaigning
10 Years of London Schools and the Black Child
For over a decade Diane Abbott MP has campaigned in Parliament to highlight the fact that black pupils face specific challenges in education and often do less well compared to their peers. Over the years LSBC has held a number workshops and conferences especially designed to give parents, teachers and the community practical weapons in the fight for educational excellence for our children.
The initiative also includes an annual awards ceremony. For the past nine years the ceremony has been held at the House of Commons to celebrate the highest achieving young people of African and African-Caribbean descent. Previous winners have gone on to great things. Many are now at top universities. This means that many Black students are getting some of the top grades in the country.
Despite these achievements there is a lot more to do.
We all have a role to play to help our children achieve educationally; government, schools and parents. And we owe it to generations yet to come.
