Post Referendum Racism - blog by Andy Gregg

ROTA submitted evidence to the House of Commons Education Select Committee Inquiry on Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs)

With the proposed expansion of the Government’s academies programme, ROTA’s submission to the Inquiry focuses on the following: the balance of decision-making at the individual school level and at the multi-academy trust level and the appropriateness of formal governance structures employed; how the performance of MATS should be assessed. We bring to the Inquiry’s attention the following:

  • The lack of representation and influence Black, Minority Ethnic, & Refugee communities have within the formal governance structures of MATs and its disproportionate impact on BME&R pupils
  • The lack of accountability and transparency on how MATs perform in relation to meeting the equalities needs of the pupils and in meeting its Public Sector Equality Duty (s.149 of the Equality Act 2010).

London Fairness Commission and ROTA (January 2016) ‘What do we need to do to make London a fairer city?’ An open space event report

The London Fairness Commission was established to organise conversations across the capital in response to this situation, asking Londoners to consider:
  • What is fairness? -
  • Is London fair?
  • What should be done to make London a fairer city?
To this end we are organising a series of Open Space events with groups from across London, hearing the voice of civil society, older Londoners, ethnic minorities, and younger Londoners.
 
This report outlines the results of the third of these events with people from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, held in partnership with Race on the Agenda and supported by the Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre.

The Open Space event report is available HERE.
