Less Than 10 - If You Believe In Equality in Education, Get Behind This Project
I am super excited to announce that I was chosen to be part of a docu-photography series called "Less Than 10" by the wonderful & super talented Zara Singh!
This project highlights the BAME educators who are making a difference in the lives of children up & down the UK - It's a fantastic project that I feel excited to be a part of!
BAME teachers make up less than 10% of the teaching workforce with a measly 1% of headteachers being from a black background.
In a country that has over 70 million people, to have only 200 black headteachers shows we have a real equality issue in the Education system.
As I have spoken about in my blog before, BAME teachers often feel invisible & ignored.
Enter Zara Singh.
Zara, a primary school teacher based in London & a talented photographer decided to make a change.
Armed with her camera & her skills, she travelled up & down the UK taking stunning pictures of BAME educators and telling their stories. In our challenging times, her docu-project captures the dignity & resilience of teachers from different walks of life trying to help their students despite the horrible circumstances.
Here's my picture!
Currently, it's on Instagram but a website will be released soon with all the pictures.
I urge every single educator out there to support this project! Get involved!
On Instagram follow @lessthan_10 & @ZaraSinghPhotography to get the details!
If you have been following me for a while, you that I am a huge advocate for diversity, equality & inclusion of ALL people in Education.
I have spoken about:
The trauma of the George Floyd murder on the black community.
Asked how we can change the Education system after in the wake of the #BLM protests.
