PubTALK – Mind The Gap: voluntary action in education
November 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We are looking forward to welcoming Dr Eddy Hogg for our November pubTALK who will be giving a talk titled ‘Mind The Gap: Does voluntary action in education exacerbate inequality?’
Voluntary action in schools is not new, but increasingly state schools are relying on donations of time and money to deliver core and non-core activities. This has brought inequalities between what donations schools can attract into focus. In this talk Eddy will discuss his research (carried out with Dr Ali Body) from Kent which finds that some schools are raising significantly more money and attracting significantly more volunteer time than others. Further, he will reflect on the impact that schools’ socio-economic profiles have on these donations.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and entry is free of charge. Everyone is encouraged to stay behind after the talks to continue the discussions for a drink or two. Please see our website for more information – https://www.kent.ac.uk/qstep/pubtalk.html
Looking forward to seeing you there! 🙂
