Promoting racial equality in schools, 01/05/09 [S]

The Scottish Government is providing 81,700 for the delivery of 152 Islamophobia workshops in secondary schools across Scotland over the next two years.

The programme will look at the causes and consequences of Islamophobia; encourage young people to develop good relationships with people from different backgrounds and cultures to their own; prepare pupils for life in a multifaith, multicultural world; and provide teachers with a valuable teaching resource for ongoing use in the classroom. The workshops will be delivered by Show Racism the Red Card.

For full details see the Scottish Government news release.
