  How could this affect your school?
Updated 11 December 2001, 13.14
School classroom
Schools with children from one main faith or race could be asked to take more pupils from different backgrounds, as part of a new way of stopping racism.

This comes after a set of reports into race riots which happened in Bradford, Oldham and Burnley this summer.

They suggest that schools which have a majority of pupils from one culture should offer at least a quarter of their places to children from other ethnic or faith groups in the area.

Stop racism

The report's authors said there were dangers in having too many pupils from one culture in the same school.

It's thought that pupils who go to school with other children from mainly the same ethnic background never learn to mix with other races, and end up living separate lives.

If children are used to living with other races, it could help stop racism and violent riots in the future.
