Educating for Anti-Racism

BOOKS, JOURNALS AND ARTICLES

CERES Blogs
Our CERES Blog was launched in September 2020, and has covered issues arising from research as well as personal accounts from educators, students, and other individuals and groups relating to the teaching on, or leadership of, matters related to ‘race’. The aim of the blogs is to open up discussion, to provide spaces for disruption, transformation and boundary-pushing in the area of race equality and anti-racism within education.
You can access all our blogs here.
