ASSIST YOUNG PEOPLE TO APPRECIATE THE DIVERSITY OF SCOTTISH SOCIETY THROUGH ACCURATE, ACCESSIBLE, AND AGE-APPROPRIATE MATERIALS ABOUT DIVERSE FAITHS AND CULTURES AND TO ENABLE THEM TO EXPRESS THEIR IDENTITY IN THEIR OWN TERMS AND TO UNDERSTAND AND REPORT DISCRIMINATION.

 
 

Anti-racism education in general is crucial, and should be taught in all schools in order to empower young people to understand their rights, to identify racism and discrimination, and to know how and where to report them.

 

Funding is needed to provide good, authoritative, age-appropriate, educational materials (physical and virtual) for use to teach about different faiths, including Judaism. Schools should engage with the relevant communities to ensure the accuracy of what is being taught.

 

School time allocated to faith teaching should not reduced or shared with other topics. It is critical that school pupils understand our shared cultural heritage often rooted in religious traditions. Furthermore, at a time when antisemitism, anti-Muslim hatred and hatred against other faiths is a concern, it is critical that the lives of faith communities are demystified and normalised.
