Synopsis

Are you happy with the school curriculum?  Is your child reading the right text books?

Award-winning essayist and journalist Anjali Enjeti says its time to diversify and ‘decolonise’ schools’ reading lists, moving away from a “white saviour narrative”.

But what exactly is a ‘white saviour narrative’ and how much does social and political history affect reading lists in the classroom?

Dr. Ini Dele-Adedeji, a Teaching Fellow at London’s SOAS also joins.
