Equality Stories is a practical handbook for school-based discussions and for planning, staff training and professional development. The stories are about projects in schools to do with the three Rs; recognition, respect and raising achievement. There are also wider stories about the development of Britain as an inclusive society, contemporary educational history and national educational policy. Originating in one LEA and the effective projects in its schools funded under the Ethnic Minority Achievement Grant, this book tackles important questions. What are the differences between EMAG and the funding regime it replaced, Section II? What new opportunities does it open up? What should be the priorities in general terms, and what should be the guiding principles for choosing between them?
