This chapter discusses that the vast majority of multiracial schools have adapted to new circumstances and the majority of pupils and parents have accepted the demands of a new and completely different environment. Recently a group of HM inspectors carried out a survey of religious education in a number of primary and secondary multiracial schools. Some teachers have made great efforts to change this state of affairs and to adapt the syllabus to suit the needs of all the children in their classes. They have used imagination to encourage and guide the introduction of West Indian, Indian, African, Greek and Chinese foods into their lessons and have applied the basic principles of cookery and nutrition to them. Many home economics teachers will admit to prejudices towards certain foods are they kidneys, hearts, liver, fish roes, anchovies, brains or spinach. Many infant teachers, in particular, stress the necessity for free school milk and vitamin deficiency tablets for young immigrant children.
