The Guardian had a headline which read “Black male headteachers in England’s state schools number just 30” and the rest of the article was even worse than the headline. The headline implies that there are only a handful of black male headteachers in the State School System. They seem to forget that a) the teaching proffession does tend to be female oriented (and they do actually quote that there are 127 black females headteachers and b) the indigenous British race happens to be “white”.
Personally I believe that a headteacher should be chosen based on ability and not colour and the reality is that the choice of staff is dependant upon the applicants that actually apply for the post. I would not expect them to pluck a black guy from the street to do the job just because he is male and black!
