In February 2019 DEEP Germany facilitated a training on “racism in schools” for 25 young teachers in Hamburg, Germany. These changemakers are part of Teach First, a globally acclaimed organisation that promotes equality through education. We as DEEP Germany are very grateful for the phenomenal attendance and incredible energy in the room. In their day-to-day life the TeachFirst fellows face a variety of great challenges as they all work in schools with severe inequality and marginalized children. One of the challenges is to understand how racism affects the pupils since the majority has a family history of migration.
