Hi Caitlin

I agree exploring education opportunities and access would be an excellent topic for your 5th class to explore. Education like so many things can be taken for granted and highlighting some of the extreme disparities will certainly provide food for thought and maybe a degree of appreciation for how fortunate they are. Thanks too  for sharing the information on the Oxfam books and your experience of using the examples to compare and contrast with their peers in other less advantaged countries. Another poignant approach to explore educational inequality closer to home is to remind them of the two unprecedented lockdowns recently lived through which highlighted education inequality. Whilst learning continued remotely it was inhibitive and unsocial and once the initial novelty wore off the reality of the have access to face-to-face teaching and learning was evident to all.
