Good evening, I am a qualified primary school teacher but am currently taking some time out to complete a masters degree. I am involved in a project looking at strategies to diversify school governing bodies (across all age ranges). Primarily, this concerns inclusion of more black, asian, ethnic minorities (BAME), and youth in school governing bodies. I have sent out a questionnaire to governors but have had 0 replies. I just wondered if anybody within this community has any experience within a school governing body? If so, what do you think are the barriers to inclusion of BAME and youth? I would be grateful for any input on this subject. Thanks, Hayley.
