Education is one of the most important means of combating racism and developing a more inclusive, intercultural society in Ireland. The Yellow Flag programme offers teachers, students and the local community an ideal opportunity to shape and influence how the school works, how the teachers interact with the students and their parents and how students interact with one another and their teachers. The Yellow Flag should be an aspiration for all schools and I look forward to working with the Irish Traveller Movement to make this a reality.”
