Last few places left – Manchester Institute of Education Policy Week Event Nov 4th

As part of Manchester Policy Week 2014 and to coincide with our next public debate on “Closing the Socio-Economic Attainment Gap”, Manchester Institute of Education is organising a one-day conference on Education Policy and Educational Inequalities. 

When: Tuesday 4th Nov
Venue: Nowgen Centre (29 Grafton Street, Manchester, M13 9WU)
Time: 5-6:30pm

All the major political parties in England are currently committed to reducing educational inequalities.  In recent years, the nature of policy intervention has shifted from Labour’s centrally-designed and often multi-agency programmes, to school-led interventions, targeting individuals and funded by the Pupil Premium.   In both versions, socio-economic inequalities have been prioritised and inequality measured in terms of gaps in test scores. This wide-ranging conference will take a broader view of the problem of educational inequalities, looking beyond school and beyond the socio-economic dimension.

Tickets are free and only a few are left so book now at Policy@Manchester website:
