2013 National Award - Report available

The Society for Educational Studies was delighted to make the 2013 National Award to Prof. David Gillborn and his team at the Centre for Research in Race and Education (CRRE), at the University of Birmingham. Their project, ‘Race, Racism and Education: inequality, resilience and reform in policy & practice’, took place between 2013 and 2015, and explored the educational legacy of the campaign for racial justice and equity following the murder of Stephen Lawrence. In particular, the project focused on the twenty year span 1993 – 2013 and sought to document how much has changed in relation to race equality and schooling in England.
