Why do black male graduates earn £7,000 less per year than their white peers?

the guardian - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 17:00

Black men face many barriers when it comes to finding a well-paid job. But the truth is that racism cannot be overcome by amassing more qualifications

‘Education, education, education” is a common refrain that black young people hear from family and community members. Work hard in school, go to university and graduate into a better life than the previous generation. Education is meant to be the great equaliser, our inoculation against ethnic penalty in the workplace – one of the most vicious symptoms of racism.

But the latest research provides a damning indictment of this view. Between 2007 and 2017, black male graduates earned a staggering £7,000 less per year than their white counterparts. The same study showed that black male participation has increased in higher education by 24%, compared with a 15% rise for white men. So, black men have been more likely to invest in higher education, even though the returns are diminished. We have become so used to the idea that we have to work twice as hard to get half as far that we now take it for granted.

Where are the black scientists, artists and thinkers in university syllabuses?

the guardian - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 13:29

Degrees focusing on blackness should become more of a priority if we are to build a truly inclusive society

What do you think of when you hear the word “black”? Do you think of a colour? A race? A culture? A movement? There are many different ways of interpreting “blackness”, prompting the question: is it a concept worth studying?

Although there is a tradition of “political blackness” in the UK, by referring to someone as black you are usually describing them as having sub-Saharan African origins. These people have been in the UK for centuries, and many important black British figures of the past, such as Olaudah Equiano, Ignatius Sancho and Walter Tull, have too often been overlooked in our nation’s history.

Head of watchdog says teachers do not have ‘silver bullet’ to cure health problem

Schools cannot provide a “silver bullet” to tackle childhood obesity and should not be expected to solve society’s wider problems, the chief inspector of Ofsted has warned.

Amanda Spielman said teachers were already stretched and should not be distracted from their primary role as educators. She said that while schools could help encourage healthy lifestyles and exercise as part of the curriculum, they could not address all aspects of the obesity problem.

Religious education needs overhaul to 'reflect UK', says report

Ex-education secretary says assemblies, syllabus and admissions policy need change

Religious education in schools is outdated and should be replaced with a new subject: religion, belief and values, and the right of parents to withdraw their children from classes should be scrapped, according to the former Labour education secretary Charles Clarke.

Significant shifts in the UK since the 1944 Education Act mean changes to the way religion and belief is taught in schools to reflect modern Britain are long overdue, Clarke and his co-author Linda Woodhead, a professor in the department of politics, philosophy and religion at Lancaster University, argue in a pamphlet published on Tuesday.
