Complementing Teachers


Our 1993 publication, Equality Assurance in Schools, became a useful teaching tool for over 20,000 practitioners. From 2000, Runnymede worked to update the book to take into consideration changes to education and race legislation. With a foreword from the Commission for Racial Equality and Prof. Lord Bhikhu Parekh, the new publication Complementing Teachers: A practical guide to promoting race equality in schools (April 2003) offers teachers helpful guidance to promoting race equality in schools. The publication includes a free CD-Rom with downloadable lesson plans and activities from across the curriculum.
