Abstract

The paper outlines the result of a one-year project of action research into the prevalence and nature of racism in two primary schools and the implementation of multi-cultural and anti-racist guidelines in Scotland. Two schools are examined with respect to these factors by teachers. The conclusion is that the action research, although not officially supported by funding, except for a small amount from the University of Stirling, is nevertheless important. It has enabled teachers to examine a marginalised educational area related to social justice, and generate local and personal knowledge that can be translated into the leverage of power. The paper challenges assumptions about racism existing only 'regionally' in the UK.
