Equity through interventions - paper for ECER 2009

Number of pages: 5 p. | Year of publication: 2009
While we are becoming steadily better at identifying and explaining factors that lead to social and educational inequity, we still know very little about successful intervention. What works for whom? In which contexts does it work? How does it work? Why does it work? And how can we benefit nationally and internationally from a local study of what makes a specific mechanism successful for a particular group of children?

This paper addresses some of these questions with the point of departure in a project being carried out in collaboration with a school district in the suburbs of Copenhagen.

The project

The project deals with how the patterns that reproduce and produce inequality of opportunity, and especially the link between social background and educational achievement, could be rearranged and broken. The intention is to develop methods and strategies in cooperation between The Danish Evaluation Institute (EVA) and a school district in the suburbs of Copenhagen.

The program staff consist of teachers from a local kindergarten, a local school and a schoolbased leisure-time activities facility, as well as representatives of the administration.

Paper presented September 2009

The paper is presented for the Inclusive Education symposium at the ECER Conference in Vienna, September 28th-30th 2009. Find further details on the conference here.
