Why and when do certain children manage to succeed ‘against the odds’ while others do not? Reducing educational inequality was the focus of a free public talk hosted by the Graduate School of Education yesterday [Wednesday 29 February].

Guest speaker Professor Iram Siraj-Blatchford, from the Institute of Education at the University of London, explored the child and family case studies that were conducted as part of a large-scale study that followed the progress of 3,000 children since 1997 from the age of 3- to 16-years-old.  

The event was chaired by Rosamund Sutherland, Professor of Education at the University of Bristol and founder of nexusbristol, a forum for for leaders from agencies and institutions across the city who are working to create better outcomes for children and young people in Bristol.
