Change needs to happen and it needs to happen now! If our independent schools are to remain amongst some of the best in the world and surpass others to become the leading schools, then we want to create within our education community an awareness agenda that gives us that unique competitive advantage.
The Black Lives Matter campaign that received public worldwide traction following the racially motivated killing of George Floyd in May 2020, had brought to light some of the unfortunate experiences of BAME students who had been and are currently being educated in our independent schools.
This can be done via adopting guided and well thought out policies for implementation and efficiency in order to affect change.
