A charity, Show Racism the Red Card, led an anti-racism day at Sacred Heart primary school in Hartlepool with 5-6 year olds. Justine King, an education worker with the charity, explained that Hartlepool has one of the lowest proportions of ethnic minorities in the UK. Following the Brexit vote, the attitudes of people in the region have shifted, leading to an increase in the expression of racist views. Hartlepool is just an example and since the referendum, there has been a national increase in hate crimes. According to figures from the Department for Education, changes in the UK’s ethnic make-up are having a wide-ranging impact on education. In a millennium cohort study with 2,000 ethnic minority participants, it was found that children who experienced racism performed less well than their peers in non-verbal reasoning and spatial tests.
