WHY I DO WHAT I DO
Our children, young people AND grown-ups need access to books with a range of cultures, stories and languages. Now more than ever, we need this! But the problem is school Headteachers and staff express there's no budget to fill their reading corners with these essential books due to government cuts etc, which means everyone is missing out.
Yes there is a bigger conversation to have about Government funding, but whilst that big structural fight is happening, our young people are still not accessing the books they need with characters that look like them.
The absence of easy-to-access multicultural content is leading to so many problems in UK schools with children feeling excluded and neglected with their sense of belonging being affected, leading to low self-esteem, low-level interest in reading and so much more.
There will invariably be HUGE GAPS in their learning and they will leave school with a deficit in a bigger understanding of the wider world and how to negotiate in it.
I have had enough of waiting for central government to fix this or for them to change their eurocentric policies.
The Government's agenda and the people's agenda are not the same and to dismantle the current system, whilst essential, will take years, if not generations. However our children and teachers need these books now!
It would mean the world to me if you can please share this message amongst your contacts, to help me reach my goal of equipping teachers and schools with fantastic Multicultural resources for their libraries and classrooms. These young people deserve it!
