The Sistas And Divas are organising a Hosting Events/Workshop titled
“SAFEGUARDING BLACK & AFRICAN BOYS IN THE BRITISH EDUCATION SYSTEM”
It is a free event where stakeholders in child Development and Education can come together to take a closer look at how Black/African boys are treated by teachers, school authorities etc within the British education System and to offer guidelines for safer and fairer treatment.
Black boys are known to generally get less fairer deals and to be dealt with less favorably by teachers and school authorities. The very same acts that other kids will carry out, a black boy is almost guaranteed to receive a more severe punishment for. I had this experience with my kid even as a little 5 year old schoolboy.
Or every 10 parents of black boys we have spoken to, a staggering 7 had the sane experience with their sons.
Black boys are also more likely to be suspended, expelled from school or prematurely stigmatised as criminals.
They are also more likely to be stopped and searched, or end up as top suspects where there has been an offense or crime, even where there has yet to be an identification.
The aim of this event is to confront stakeholders with these information and hopefully lead them to realise the lasting damage these actions can have on young black boys, many of them already in vulnerable situations and needing more of support and guidance than punishment or isolation
