Helen Atkinson Wood and Jenni Mills go out in search of the Great British Sunday.
Produced by VANESSA HARRISON for the Woman's Hour unit
The first of six programmes in which individuals of strong, controversial opinion confront those people who most vigorously oppose them.
1: Are Our Schools Racist?
Ray Honeyford is headmaster of a multi-ethnic school in Bradford, but he believes that 'multi-cultural' education policies are undermining standards and creating more racial tensions than they dispel. He's been bitterly attacked for publishing his views and today he confronts teachers, parents and community leaders in Manchester where the education authority is about to introduce even stronger measures to combat the racism which they claim pervades our schools.
