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.

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

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