Mmmm ... so the 'shouty boys' hang out here too ...
No you can not rule it out, any more than you can rule out that those white British's careers progression is sometimes negatively effected because of their ethnicity. What the report shows is there is not evidence to say that on average there is a significant difference in the progression of teachers based on their ethnicity. That when taken as a group, progression between different ethnic groups is largely the same (within a few percentage points whose difference can be attributed to random factors).
I hadn't noticed you had gone off on a tangent. I still thought you were wondering about the cause for the disparity in the number of HT who are BAME. In which case you can not say that the reason which is stopping BAME staff from progressing is racism , because the report shows there is no significant difference in the progression between the groups. Where racism occurs it is not a factor that is causing one group to benefit significantly over the other. So I suggest the disparity has been getting BAME to become teachers in the first place. Smaller pools mean less going on to headship. As the pools get bigger then it will increase. The lack of BAME teachers may be in part due to the gap in that group's attainment gap at university.
Perhaps if you sent us all some unicycles we wouldn't want to post as much
(What did you think of the unicycle act on BGT?)
I never said it was.
It’s clearly not a black and white issue.
I’ll get my goat.
What's your goat called?
Boaty McBoat Face
Back in the days when I worked in inner city London comprehensives, it did. And it worked really well. But that was in the days when we had a government that actually cared about the state system. Needless to say, many of the excellent BAME SLT have moved on to pastures greener since.
Ta. I shall have to go and watch it on 'catch up'.
I liked the way he said the world record is 19 feet ... that's 22 feet!
A unicycling hooligan was riding backwards up my street on a 5 foot giraffe unicycle once. His ankle tag was clearly visible at eye level as he passed by ...
Nice to watch some of the magic acts too on BGT.
I'll have to tune in to see how he gets on with the 35 foot version.
It would probably have been better had @mark_oviri1 introduced himself to this forum before coming on and demanding changes.
What does anyone know about him? Indeed can he unicycle?
It is almost exclusively white working class boys I have taught locally. The best lad however was mixed race. He was telling me about the racial origins of his relatives once. He finally concluded ... "Kevin ... I'm a mongrel!".
Longer term engagement would probably have been better for @mark_oviri1 to have gained a more positive experience.
Why not PM him?
Mark has probably gone for good! He can read my comment if ever does return.
It is more of a general observation. Forums are full of strange and quirky people. You have to understand more about the person giving the opinion even if they do agree with you.
People should hang around a bit to give themselves a bit of credibility too. Reassure people that their ideas will benefit all and not just themselves.
