Social Mobility – chance or choice?


Literary Festival

Sonia Blandford, author of Social Mobility: Chance or Choice?, asks whether we care enough as a society by considering the issues, solutions and impact to the education and social issues that push against the chance or choice of social mobility. Sonia ultimately questions whether the traditional ‘recognised journey’ of educational achievement – maximising university entrance – is still relevant or useful for working class children and young people and children facing disadvantage.
