Australian academics have released new research on the incidences of direct racism on children in Australian schools. All Together Now produced this infographic based on the report.
The research shows that many children still experience racism in Australian schools, but that children who were born in non-English-speaking countries — and who have parents born in non-English-speaking countries — are much more likely to experience racism at school. Further, primary school students are more likely to experience racism than students at high school. The solutions include sustained interventions starting at a young age.
These facts and potential interventions will be discussed today at a symposium ‘Racism and the health and wellbeing of children and youth: understanding impacts, finding solutions’ to be held at the University of Melbourne.
