Seminar Overview

This SERA Connects webinar will present findings from the interdisciplinary Excluded Lives project exploring the policies, practices and costs of formal, informal and unlawful school exclusions across the four UK jurisdictions. There are large disparities in the official rates of school exclusion across the four nations of the UK. However, very little is known about the reasons why the four nations differ so greatly. In this webinar, we will explore the legislative and policy context underpinning school exclusion in each jurisdiction drawing on our analysis of legislation, policy documents and relevant literature. In doing so, we will identify the key political discourses and solutions to school exclusion in each jurisdiction, as well as highlighting similarities and differences across the UK policy landscapes.

Sign up to this event through Eventbrite. Please join at 4:20pm for the presentation and discussion starting at 4:30pm.
