Free Schools failing to demonstrate they are advancing racial equality, new report finds
The Coalition Government’s free schools programme, contrary to its stated aims to address educational disadvantage and attainment gaps, is failing to do so, concludes a report commissioned by the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union in the UK.
The report, Free Schools, Equality and Inclusion, researched and written by Race On The Agenda (ROTA) found that many free schools are not operating fair and inclusive admission policies and are failing to comply with their statutory obligations to equality.
The aMASE community study is an online survey. It focuses on the barriers to accessing health care for migrant communities. The survey is open to all migrants, whether they are living with HIV or not. Information from this study will be used to help plan services and ensure that the best care is available for everyone in Europe, no matter where they come from.
ROTA is promoting this important survey of health care for migrant communities. Please encourage your members to participate in the survey.
The community survey takes around 15 minutes to complete. To take part you just have to be aged 18 or over and living outside your country of birth. Taking part will make a difference to you, your family and your community. Take part in the community study.
