Tackling Islamophobia: advice for schools and colleges
The problem of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim prejudice and racism has intensified in the wake of the events of September 11 2001. In certain quarters, an unacceptable and unfounded association has been made between human rights violations, terrorist networks and the Muslim communities and asylum seekers present in Britain. This has led to an inflammation of racial and religious tensions in some towns and cities, and may have contributed to the resurgence of extreme far-right political parties. All of these developments have resulted in an increased level of fear within Muslim and other communities which impacts on all pupils/students and staff in schools and colleges. This resource offers valuable advice to schools and colleges on dealing with Islamophobia.
