Policy Paper: Racism in Education Institutions

Policy Paper: Racism in Education Institutions

“Racism is the process by which systems and policies, actions and attitudes create inequitable opportunities and outcomes for people based on race” (Australian Human Rights Commission, 2022). This includes all the laws, policies, ideologies and barriers that prevent people from experiencing justice, dignity, and equity because of their racial identity. Racism is a historic problem that has taken a particular form in hyper-diverse countries, including Australia, and it is widespread in Australia’s educational settings, according to the Report on Racism in Australian Schools, completed by Dr. John Bosco Ngendakurio (2024) in collaboration with ECCQ.
