A shrewsbourne school could have a history of racism and its students may not have been taught the words “racism” and “racists” to their first grade, a report has found.
The report found there were “systematic and systematic deficiencies” at two of the schools in the state’s largest school system.
Key points: The report shows there were systemic and systematic failings at two schools in New South Wales school system The report said students were not taught the word “racisms” and the word ‘racists’ in the first grade The report was commissioned by the NSW Education Union and commissioned by an independent school.
It found the schools were rife with systemic racism, and were not teaching students about racism.
The inquiry found the teachers were not properly trained to deal with students of colour, and that students were being taught “misandry and misogyny” in the schools.
In some instances, the report said teachers were also being taught to “dispute” the behaviour of their pupils.
In one school, students were told that “black people” were “trying to take over” the community and that their “own communities have been destroyed”.
It also said the teachers had “failed to understand the difference between racial bias and discrimination”.
The report is part of the NSW Government’s $6 billion review into systemic racism in NSW.
NSW Education Minister John Robertson told the ABC that the schools had “made significant progress” in recent years, and he was “confident” the state would be able to improve their performance.
“These schools have made significant progress in the past few years and we are confident they will continue to do so in the future,” Mr Robertson said.
“We are also working hard to address systemic racism and inequality that exists within the system.”
What are racism and racism?
Racism is the discrimination of people based on their race or ethnicity, often based on disability.
Racists are people who use racism to further their own interests.
Racial discrimination is when a group of people is treated differently due to their race, ethnicity or gender.
What does it mean for a school?
A school is considered to be “systematically and systematically deficient” if there are “systemic and systematic weaknesses” in how the school is run or where resources are allocated, the state inquiry found.
“Systematic and systemic deficiencies” include racism, discrimination, inequality and inequality of opportunity.
In the case of the school in question, the school was “underperforming, underfunded and underperforming for students of color” and had a “failure to address and respond to systemic racism”, the inquiry found, as well as systemic “institutional racism”.
Where did the findings come from?
The NSW Education Secretary, Michelle Roberts, was tasked with looking into systemic and systemic racism across the state, and the NSW Auditor-General, Peter Jackson, was appointed as the state commissioner.
“The NSW Education Department has been working closely with the NSW and Commonwealth governments and with independent educational experts to carry out the review,” the NSW Department of Education said in a statement.
“Our work is centred on identifying systemic and institutional racism, ensuring that schools are operated as effectively as possible, and ensuring that students are taught the same information as all other students and staff.”
The report also outlines that there are systemic and persistent failures in schools to deal effectively with racism and systemic discrimination, particularly in the public education sector.
“Racial discrimination has been defined by the UN as ‘a set of practices, attitudes and attitudes of the group in power that target one or more groups for disadvantage or discrimination’.” In NSW, the commission also found “systems of systemic and deliberate discrimination” and an “unfair and discriminatory treatment of non-white people”. “
Racism is one of the most pervasive forms of discrimination, affecting the lives of those in a minority and its effects on others,” the report states.

Racial prejudice was “systemically and systematically prevalent”, the report found.
Racial bias “can have serious and harmful effects on students of all ages, in schools, communities and workplaces.”
The report’s authors also said they had identified “system-wide systemic failures in the management of schools and other school entities”, and had “found systemic and pervasive systemic and structural deficiencies in the operation and maintenance of schools”.
Why are we talking about systemic racism?
In the past, “systemal racism” has been a catch-all term for many of the worst things a person could be subjected to, such as institutional racism.
But there is no such thing as systemic racism.
A person can be racist if they hold different beliefs, have different political opinions, or have different behaviours than someone else, but there is “no such thing in the law as systemic or deliberate discrimination”, the commission found.
How is systemic racism treated?
When racism is seen in the context of racism, it is often seen as a systemic problem and that it needs to be addressed. It can
