BME Children in London Schools – 2 December 2011

This event at Middlesex University will see the launch of the final research report of our study on “BME children in London: educational needs and the role of community organisations” (D’Angelo et al.), which uses Day-Mer, Turkish and Kurdish Community Centre as a case study.

The day would be also be an opportunity for a broader discussion on BME and migrant children in UK schools and in particular on the role of third sector organisations in supporting children’s education, including supplementary schools, parental engagement and other initiatives. There will also be a discussion of the ongoing school ‘reform’, a panel of local community organisations and a bit of international comparative perspective.
