Incidents of racism in schools reached nearly 88,000
Nearly 88,000 racist incidents were recorded in Britain's schools between 2007 and 2011, the BBC has found.
Data from 90 areas showed 87,915 cases of racist bullying, which included name calling and physical abuse.
Sarah Soyei, of Show Racism the Red Card, has described the figures as the "tip of the iceberg".
Schoolgirl Khadeja Fahat said the daily abuse she suffered had a massive impact on both her mental health and her education.
