Four out of five children born in non-English-speaking countries have experienced racism in school at least once a month.

Deakin University researcher Naomi Priest presented these findings – from a survey of children at five primary schools and four high schools in Victoria – to the Australian Institute of Family Studies.

Dr Priest said being told “you don’t belong in Australia” was the most common form of direct racism in schools. She said one in five students heard this at least every month.
