THE Centre for Education for Racial Equality at Moray House is conducting a long-term survey of 4,000 Scottish schools to identify those doing impressive work in this area.

She suggested Scotland was "uncomfortable with diversity". This was evident in the responses from some schools which say good practice amounts to "not noticing" children's colour.
