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)
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.
