The circumstances facing different families vary a great deal – as do the resources with which they are equipped. So when it comes to organising learning activities in the home, some families are far more able to live up to the demands of childcare centres than others. But why don’t we just let the professionals deal with these learning tasks, instead of assuming responsibility for their agenda?
It’s not always easy to stay optimistic in the battle against inequality in education. Because things are going the wrong way at the moment. More than ever before, success (or failure) in the education system tends to be inherited from one generation to the next – at both ends of society. At the same time, gender stereotypes in schools create structural inequality. But we mustn’t give up, because there’s plenty to fight for. Even though the results rarely reflect the effort invested.
