Inequality and Education: taking stock and finding solutions
On 27 June 2022, NatCen’s Centre for Children and Families hosted a conference to bring together research and researchers working on inequality and education from the early years all the way to young adults.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated many existing inequalities. This applies particularly to the area of education where the repeated closure of schools and nurseries has widened the gap between high and low achieving students, has led to the disappearance of children in the system and has generally highlighted the important role that institutions and individuals play in the lives of our children.
The keynote address was delivered by Juliette Cammaerts, Director of Policy and Planning, Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England, and you can view her presentation here.
Research papers and presentations were delivered under themed sessions at this conference. Watch the proceedings via the YouTube live stream recording and PDF copies of these slides can also be found for each session below:
