School segregation

This workstream aims to deepen the knowledge of school segregation to contribute to the decision-making of public educational and social policies that affect the reduction of this phenomenon that generates serious inequities.

Born in 2014, within the framework of the project “Schools in socio-economically challenging contexts: An approach from education for social justice” (State Plan R & D & I, Ref: EDU2014-56118-P). A work led and developed, mainly, by members of the Research Group Educational Change for Social Justice that are currently part of the team of researchers of the UNESCO Chair.

To date, a dozen articles have been published in quality educational research journals, but it has also had an impact on the media (press, radio and television), participation in various conferences and seminars on the subject and established contacts to influence the development of public education policies.
