Appeal for anti-racist education.
Byline: KATRINE BUSSEY
THE need for anti-racist education in schools is becoming more urgent than ever, teachers' leaders have insisted.
EIS general secretary Larry Flanagan said the rise of the far-right in politics made challenging prejudice an "important task".
He spoke out as teachers and lecturers from across Scotland headed for Glasgow to discuss what they can do to combat racism through education.
Labour's Anas Sarwar, chairman of Holyrood's cross-party group on tackling Islamophobia, will use his speech to call for antiracism education to be embedded across the school curriculum.
The MSP also wants changes to training to make equality a more mainstream issue and for more heads and deputy heads to come from ethnic backgrounds.
