In this Republic of Childhood episode we take a look at education and social mobility. Have we really transcended class in our school system?
In Moving: A Memoir of Education and Social Mobility, renowned professor, government adviser, and global change agent Andy Hargreaves shares candid, poignant and occasionally hilarious personal experiences of social mobility. Deeply revealing, emotionally direct, and intellectually insightful, the book begins in 1950s Northwest England and takes readers up to Hargreaves's university education in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Hargreaves openly shares how class movement has affected him throughout life, links his narrative to classic and contemporary research and realities, and calls on society to reverse the increasing levels of social immobility and inequity worldwide.
Suitable for young writers aged 13+, this event is presented by Republic Of Childhood.
