Last quote by Afua Hirsch

Placing at-risk children in custody doesn’t work. They need the same educational support as their richer peers. Not long ago, driving through a Warwickshire town looking for a residential school, of a kind, I drove past a group of pupils walking in a crocodile. The uniforms caught my attention – the girls’ skirts looked unusually long, flapping around the ankles, an eccentricity denoting privilege. The boys were dressed in suits, and they were accompanied by a master in long robes.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Afua Hirsch came from an article called Toppling statues? Here’s why Nelson’s column should be next: “While the US argues about whether to tear down monuments to the supporters of slavery, Britain still celebrates the shameful era. The area I grew up in, leafy Wimbledon in south-west London, is bordered by memorials to two towering historical figures. One side dedicates its streets and walls to the legacy of the abolitionist William Wilberforce: the remnants of a house where he lounged with his friends, and the mounting block he used to get on his horse to ride to the Houses of Parliament, still stand.”.
