Black Britons

17th May 1996 at 01:00
When I saw the headline "Caribbean boys fall far behind", I wondered which Caribbean island was being written about (TES, April 26). After reading the article, I realised that it was about black boys who were born in this country. Is it any wonder that these children are underachieving? The majority of them were born here and are made to feel that they do not belong. They are British children even though they are black.

I am surprised that The TES should make these statements.
