Social mobility—the chance, through education, to achieve greater success than one’s parents—is a compelling issue of our time. Beginning in 1950s northern England, this revealing memoir links Andy Hargreaves’s experiences of social mobility to today’s challenges of inequity and immobility.
Benefits:Learn, through the author’s research and firsthand account, how issues surrounding mobility, equity, and education in the 20th century are still reflected in 21st century life.
Understand the obstacles of socially mobile students as they negotiate schoolwork, poverty, cultural collisions, and personal hardship.
How Hargreaves’s experiences of testing, selection, ADHD, inspiring and uninspiring teaching, whole-child inclusion, and elitist exclusion are still alive and well in education
Study three alternative scenarios for the future of social mobility that highlight the best ways to address both mobility and equity and to deal with the strains experienced by students who succeed in becoming mobile.
This event includes a copy of Andy Hargreaves book, Moving: A Memoir of Education and Social Mobility.
