Hi Caroline,

Welcome to the course and thank you for our detailed post here. The content of your post really echoes the tone of Ehigie’s piece, referring to the global family and how problems in one part of the world can have knock-on effects in other parts. In terms of challenging educational disadvantage, the importance of ‘coming together and working together’ cannot be overstated. It is essential that everyone, including policymakers and public representatives, are rowing in the same direction. Involving the children in a discussion and study around wants and needs is a very effective tool to highlight privilege and disadvantage to them, and it would be hope that this might trigger something in them to speak out against it as they mature.
