The BERA Commission on Poverty and Policy Advocacy: seminar series
Online registration has now closed. If you want to attend this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to register onsite.
The BERA Poverty and Policy Commission aims to influence and broaden public debate on the role of education to improve the life chances of children & youth living in poverty. The Commission comprises six interlinked seminars that provide spaces for academics, teachers and policy makers across the four jurisdictions of the UK to engage in knowledge building about poverty and cumulative multiple deprivations as these find expression in education and schooling.
The fifth seminar in the series will focus on the lessons that we can learn from the history of policy rhetoric and implementation in relation to poverty and young people’s education. The sessions will discuss policy in relation to: the language of poverty; gender; diversity; and recent government policies.
