Do we dare to start a new conversation on social mobility?

In this month’s episode, we will be returning to the theme of social mobility and will consider the role schools play when it comes to increasing opportunities for pupils.

Professor Sonia Blandford is one of the country’s experts on improving the education and aspirations of children from disadvantaged backgrounds. James Bowen talks to Sonia about the key issues covered in her latest book ‘Social Mobility: Chance or Choice?’ and considers what would happen of we were to genuinely shift the dial of this perennial challenge.
