ABC’s ground-breaking new series on racism airs in September

We are all different and each has equal rights, yet why are some people not treated well just because they are different? Why aren't differences valued and respected?
Find out more about what people are doing to change this by watching this new three-part series on ABC television. It will be on iView too, so it will be available to be seen at other times and days than listed here and in television guides. The School That Tried to End Racism, premieres on Tuesday 21 September at 8.30pm on ABC TV and ABC iview.

As in the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the child, there should be no discrimination.
"All children have all these rights, no matter who they are, where they live, what language they speak, what their religion is, what they think, what they look like, if they are a boy or girl, if they have a disability, if they are rich or poor, and no matter who their parents or families are or what their parents or families believe or do. No child should be treated unfairly for any reason."

In Korczak's words, "Children are not the people of tomorrow, but people today. They are entitled to be taken seriously. They have a right to be treated by adults with tenderness and respect, as equals. They should be allowed to grow into whoever they were meant to be - The unknown person inside each of them is the hope for the future."
