even if it is not intended to do so. It is pervasive of society at large and the educational system it consists of:
By law, all schools have to prevent and tackle all forms of bullying – including homophobic bullying – and they’re not allowed to treat a student or teacher unfairly because of their sexual orientation.
In 2010 a law called the Equality Act was passed which included something called the Public Duty. The Public Duty is a new piece of equality law which means that public services, including schools have to take positive steps to help lesbian, gay and bisexual people feel included. The law says they have to tackle bullying and unfair treatment of gay people, make sure that gay people get the same opportunities as others and help make sure that people of all sexual orientations get on well together.
Prejudice Related Bullying
Prejudice-related bullying hurts young people more than general bullying because it targets a person’s core values and things about themselves they cannot change. A one-off prejudice related incident may, therefore, have the same negative effects on a young person as many non-prejudice related incidents.
Research from mainly white schools has shown that 25% of Black Minority and Ethnic pupils had experienced racist name calling within the last week . A third reported that hurtful name calling and verbal abuse either at school or on the school journey. More than 16% reported that this was persistent. (DfES 2002)
What is racism?
Racism is defined in the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry Report as: “Conduct or words which advantage or disadvantage people because of their colour, culture or ethnic origin. In its subtle form it is more damaging than in its overt form”

Any of the above forms of racial harassment, or any other discrimination by employers in connection with work placements or work experience.
