Bishop of Birmingham asks about cohesion in schools

The Bishop of Birmingham asked a question regarding improvements in cohesion in Birmingham schools on 28th March 2022:

The Lord Bishop of Birmingham: My Lords, will the Minister commend the people of Birmingham for their extraordinary efforts since 2014 on cohesion and attempting to learn lessons from this very complicated event, as we have heard in your Lordships’ House today? Will she particularly commend them for the United Nations rights reporting school award, which has been applied for every year and is now awarded to 51% of primary and secondary schools in Birmingham, compared with only 18% across the country? Will she commend these actions and others, and ask for them to be replicated around the country so that we might live as one people?

Baroness Barran (Con): I thank the right reverend Prelate for his question and for pointing out the success of integration in primary schools; I am happy to share in his welcome of that.
