2016:18 Black teachers in Liverpool. Jan 2017 no change?

The issue highlighted in Liverpool today is one that is occurring in almost every major city in the UK- The lack of Black teachers. This is particularly problematic where the number of Black students is significant. Nationally the data shows there are 6.7% BME teachers.
