Anti-Racism Education

The NSW Department of Education and Training rejects all forms of racism. It is committed to the elimination of racial discrimination - including direct and indirect racism, racial vilification and harassment - in its organisation, structures and culture, in its curriculum, and in the learning and working environments for which it is responsible.

Under the Anti-Racism Policy, school principals and managers of worksites are responsible for ensuring that all learning and working environments are free from discrimination and racism. To support this, schools and worksites must appoint an Anti-Racism Contact Officer (ARCO) and ensure that this person is trained.

Anti-racism education also focuses on confronting the race-based generalisations, stereotypes, bias, prejudice and discrimination that are the foundations of direct and indirect racism.
