WEME to the rst online Runnymede Bulletin,
the shiny new digital incarnation of our esteemed 40-year-old publication. Regular readers of the Runnymede Bulletin will have come to expect manythings from us, not least relevant news updates, in-depth analysis and thoughtfulcomment from the race equality sector and the wider academic arena. And thiseducation special, while dierent in its delivery, will not disappoint with its content.ook out for the symbol on our contents page for everything education-related.
 urn to page 10 for Dr ony Sewell’s opinion on the eect high numbers of absentfathers are having on young black boys’ attainment in school. But before you makeup your mind, see the opposite page for racey Reynolds’ counter argument.In keeping with our education theme, one of our new and permanent features- the Q&A (pp 28 & 29) - is with Zenna Atkins, chair of fsted. his issue we learnhow the schools inspection body incorporates race equality into its work, andhow Zenna’s unconventional route to success has cemented her belief in theimportance of education.
Read snappy expert comments on how inevitable cuts in the education sector’sbudget will aect each slice of the eld in another of our new additions - theVox Pop on page 30.
Away from education, contributions from experts barrister orinna Ferguson andord arlile Q explore the use and dangers of ethnic proling on pages 19 & 20.Meanwhile our nancial inclusion team explore the importance of money advice(p 16), assets (p 18) and behavioural economics (p 21).
And, before you think we’ve forgotten all about the recent poll that decided thefuture of our country, read Runnymede director, Rob Berkeley’s thoughts on what thecoalition government might mean for education and race equality policy (p 43).
 here are also reviews, key facts and much much more, which I’ll leave you toexplore at your own pace.
Which leaves me just to thank all the wonderful people who lent us theirthoughts, expertise, words and images to make this new-look Spring 2010Runnymede Bulletin happen; we know your time is precious and we appreciateevery second of it.
