Across England and Wales, people from minority ethnic backgrounds are breaking through barriers. More students from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds are achieving in school and going to university.
The Lammy Review looks at the over representation of BAME prisoners and seek ideas for reintegration.
BAME youth entering prison were less likely to be recorded as at risk of self-harm, or to have problems with their physical or mental health. They were less likely to be recorded as having learning difficulties, to be disengaged with education.
