Petition Independent inquiry into exclusions of Black children from school

Some Black boys are 168x's more likely to be permanently excluded from school than a white British girl. The same behaviour by another ethnicity/nationality results in in-house reprimand. Black children are over represented in PRU's. Black men with mental conditions are over represented in prisons.

More details

PRUs often do not meet academic, social or emotional needs. I believe many Black children are discriminated against through unlawful exclusion processes, despite having an Education Health Care Plan. Mass exclusions perpetuate the SCHOOLS to PRISON PIPELINE. Excluded children are vulnerable, at risk of being groomed into gangs, forced into county lines & child sexual exploitation. I want an independent inquiry and action to stop disproportionate and discriminatory exclusions of Black children.
