'All Shall Have a Bite of the (Poisoned?) Apple' Social Justice in Education - Lecture

Sentamu Lecture Theatre, University of Cumbria, Bowerham Road, LA1 3JD Lancaster

Presented by Professor Sally Elton-Chalcraft

Sally is the Director of the Learning Education and Development research centre at the University of Cumbria and joint convener of religions, values and education special interest group for the British Educational Research Association.  She researches and publishes in the areas of Religious Education, Anti-Racism, Special Educational Needs and School Leadership.  She is passionate about creating a fairer world through exploring issues of social justice and making education accessible, creative and thought provoking.

Pursuing social justice in education is complex – what is the purpose of education? What does successful education look like?  Can everyone access success? What barriers do some children encounter, why, and what can be done? How can education provide equitable opportunities for children? Is English education white, patriarchal and middle class? This lecture explores the complexities of equality in education and draws on some key literature and surveys Professor Elton-Chalcraft’s published work.
