Tony Breslin to talk on social exclusion
Tony Breslin, Citizenship Foundation Chief Executive, will talk to the forthcoming Social Change Conference on league tables and social exclusion.
Our education system has embraced the new culture of targets. Tony Breslin will argue that competitive schools are chasing the next place on the league table by nurturing those with the greatest chance of success. In doing so, they systematically exclude those who need help the most, leaving other institutions and society to pick up the pieces.
So what would inclusion look like and what would happen if we turned the tables?
The Social Change Conference is being held by the Directory of Social Change on 8 Dec.
