“As teachers, we know we have a responsibility to dispel the myths and lies that are gathering around immigration and asylum. Here is an excellent resource to help us do just that. We Are Here provides accessible, well supported and thought provoking material for Secondary Schools and youth groups. All young people should see and use this – all schools should buy a copy.”
