稱為蘭普頓報告集中特別是在西印度的孩子們在學校雖然產生于1985的完整報告，正式稱為全民教育，簡稱斯旺報告，看著所有少數民族教育和研究多元文化的廣泛影響在教育系統。報告的證據指出，種族主義是對英國學校的少數民族兒童的經驗的影響，為邁向更多元文化教育體系的舉動。主體已被選為該委員會的工作是具有開創性的同時–它是第一個政府報告提到種族主義作為英國社會[ 1 ]問題時，有一個活躍的辯論在英國的種族關系問題。本文探討的同化理論、一體化和文化多元化，主導在各點的社會學思考1960到80年代中期，檢查的影響，無論是Rampton和斯萬的報告全文認為，雖然報告提出了一些挑戰和創新思想的反應，在當時的政治氣候不允許他們有很大的影響。分析中等教育的今天，一些少數民族繼續成績表明Rampton和斯萬最終沒有實際效果。教育確實有塑造和形成社會的能力--這是委員會得出的結論之一--然而，在英國，中學教育系統仍然未能以積極的態度始終如一地做到這一點。
known as the Rampton Report focussed specifically on West Indian children in schools whilst the full report produced in 1985, officially called Education for All and referred to as the Swann Report, looked at the education for all ethnic minority groups and examined the wider implication of multiculturalism in the education system. The reports produced evidence pointing to the fact that racism was having an effect on the experiences of ethnic minority children in British schools and called for a move towards a more multi-cultural education system.The subject has been chosen as the committee’s work was groundbreaking at the time – it was the first ever government report to mention racism as a problem in British societyand came at a time when there was an active debate in Britain around race relations issues. This dissertation examines the theories of assimilation, integration and cultural pluralism that dominated sociological thinking at various points from 1960 to the mid 1980s.In examining the impact of and reaction to both the Rampton and Swann reports the dissertation will argue that whilst the reports offered some challenging and innovative ideas, the political climate at the time did not allow for them to have any great impact. An analysis of secondary education today and the continuing underachievement of some ethnic minority groups indicate that Rampton and Swann have ultimately had little real effect. Education does have the power to shape and form a society – this was one of the conclusions that the committee came to – as yet in Britain however, the secondary education system is still failing to consistently do this in a positive manner.
