Avis, James (1988) White Ethnicity White Racism: Teacher and Student Perceptions of FE. Journal of Moral Education, 17 (1). pp. 52-60. ISSN 0305-7240

The paper considers the way in which white teachers and students make sense of 'race' in a multiracial college of further education. It argues that within white cultural forms there are two main ways of comprehending race, the 'nationalistic' and 'liberal'. It suggests however that these two forms are interrelated and that paradoxically the nationalistic may feed in and support a white 'liberalism'. It is argued that the liberal form's denial of structure serves to sustain a white racism. On a more positive note it is argued that teachers' concerns with equal opportunities provide an important resource in the development of an anti-racist education.
