Michael Young-1 If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that our first guest speaker in Act II (Tuesday 3rd November) will be Michael Young, and the title of his talk is: Schooling, curriculum, and social justice.

If you’re interested in brushing up on your sociology of education ahead of time, Michael has sent through a book chapter he has written entitled “What are schools for?”. This chapter gives an interesting overview of the main arguments and debates in the sociology of education since the 1970s.
