Young Children and Racial Justice provides a framework for good practice in racial equality for everyone working in the early years sector. It provides an accessible overview of racism, and explores how children learn their attitudes towards people who are different to themselves. Covering key areas such as prejudice, discrimination and Government policy, the book addresses current and contentious issues such as terminology, terrorism, community cohesion, skin colour, living in mainly white areas, name-calling, unlearning racism and dealing with racist incidents. Designed for use in professional development, with case studies, references and accessible articles for students, this book gives practitioners the tools and knowledge to implement race equality policies and action plans.
