Education and Young People

In 2015 we have produced two major reports on education.

Our most recent publication, The School Report, examined race, education and inequality in Contemporary Britain. Earlier in 2015 we published a report on higher education and race, Aiming Higher, outlining the continued inequalities for Black and minority ethnic people in terms of admissions, degree attainment, curriculum content, and staffing in universities.

Our two most recent education projects are History Lessons and Making Histories, both of which interrogate the question of who gets included in our national history. Both also directly engaged young people, and built on previous work seeking to enhance the impact of original academic work through the production of online resources such as Bangla Stories and Romans Revealed.

We have also recently produced a briefing When Education Isn't Enough, showing that even recent BME Russell Group university graduates have higher risk of unemployment compared to their White British peers.

Past reports have explored race equality within higher education (December 2010) and have revisited debates surrounding the disproportionate exclusions of Black pupils (July 2010) from schools in England.
