So I just read that in the last year, 330 primary school children (that's up to 11, international readers) were excluded due to 'racial abuse'. Now of course it's important to point out to children that racism is unacceptable, but excluding children on these grounds seems crazy. Firstly, the child is clearly too young to have formed considered opinions about anything. Secondly, school would be the best place to teach them why racism is unacceptable. Thirdly, imagine the resentment a child would feel against the education system if being racist meant them losing out on an education - surely they'd feel the scales were tipped against them in favour of ethnic minorities? I can't understand this.
