  Headteacher Gloria Hyatt MBE 05 December 2003  
In the wake of Benjamin Zephaniah's very public refusal of an OBE, we talk to Gloria Hyatt, the black headteacher of a school in Liverpool who's decided to accept an MBE for services to education.

Gloria Hyatt talks to Sheila about the Elimu Academy where she's been in charge for ten years and her endeavours to provide a fresh start and inspiration for boys in the city who've fallen through the cracks in the school system.
