education system fails black children.
LSBC has worked with the black community both here and overseas to highlight and challenge educational inequality. Since LSBC began we have seen improvements in educational outcomes for black children. We know that with the right support and opportunities our children can break down the stereotypes and rank amongst the very best in the country.
But the discourse on equity and social justice in education has become “colourblind” at a time when the student demographic profile has never been more diverse. Together with the fundamental changes currently occurring in the education system, the danger is that hard won programs for black children will be lost.We need to create a new narrative to make sure black children, black parents and black educators are heard and not left behind. This conference will provide an opportunity for pupils, teachers, parents, academics and community groups to discuss how to navigate this new educational landscape.
