Most primary schools celebrate the different cultures that makeup Australia. Harmony Week is a particular time of the year when children are encouraged to celebrate the diversity in the country and their schools. But are we missing the point? New research from Monash University has revealed that students want to talk about racism and that the approach most schools are taking is not addressing concerns about racism.Hannah Yared is a psychologist and the lead researcher on the study of racism in schools. Maxine Beneba Clarke is an author whose picture books offer a more inclusive education to children.
