In an opinion piece ("Don't stay cocooned", TES Cymru, April 7), it was stated that inspection agency Estyn plans to enforce race equality and diversity education across all schools in Wales. This is incorrect.

The Commission for Racial Equality has said it may serve enforcement notices on those schools where policies fail to come up to scratch.
