The 50th-anniversary Internet launch of “How the West Indian Child is Made Educationally Sub-normal …“, was held on the 31 March 2021, with a panel comprising with Bernard Coard, Jeremy Corbyn MP and other invited guests.
In How the West Indian Child is Made Educationally Sub-normal in the British School System: The Scandal of the Black Child in Schools, first published in 1971 by New Beacon Books, Bernard Coard examined the enforced educational inequality and institutional racism in the UK. Fifty years on Coard reviewed his work.
QUESTIONNAIRE and Q&A
A questionnaire was circulated to obtain feedback from the launch. It was promised that an anonymised summary of the returns will be published afterward on this page Because of the numbers attending the launch we were unable to host a live Q&A session. However, we asked for questions to be put to the panel via the questionnaire, which will also be responded to afterward with the anonymised answers also published on http://grenada-forwardever.net/archives/358
