Guest lecture - Black representation and history in schoolsWatch
Kemoy Walker, Teacher and contributor to the Spiela community discusses his experience of being a black secondary school teacher and Head of Year, the importance of diverse role models and a representative curriculum.
For this year's Black History Month, we're sharing perspectives and resources to help create positive change on TSR, and hopefully in the wider world.
What's your experience been of diverse role models in your school?
Does your school embed things like black history in your curriculum?
Spiela's mission is to engage those from under represented backgrounds and ensure that they have a safe and supportive space in which to engage and network with others.
