Material Factors

  1. 1. <ul><li>Ethnicity and attainment </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>In order to examine the relationship between attainment and ethnicity I have used the same format used earlier in the course </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore we will examine influential factors outside school (material, cultural and language) and factors inside school (interactionist: teacher labelling, stereotyping, self-fulfilling prophecy) </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>All the data presented comes mainly from (and you really need to know this for your examination) </li></ul><ul><li>The Swann Report (1985) </li></ul><ul><li>Two Ofsted Reports (1996 & 2000) </li></ul><ul><li>Two DCSF – Department for Children, Schools and Families (2004 and 2005) </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>the poorer end (you need to refer back to our earlier examination of the effects of material factors on attainment in order to understand the impact of the details below) </li></ul><ul><li>Two thirds of Pakistani and Bangladeshi households live below the poverty line </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>27% of African-Caribbean and 65% of Pakistani or Bangladeshi households were classed as low income households, compared to 18% of white households </li></ul><ul><li>African-Caribbean, Pakistani and Bangladeshi are three times more likely to be unemployed as white people </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>the wealthier end </li></ul><ul><li>Indian and African-Asian children are more likely to come from a professional of business background giving them all the advantages being middle-class can give </li></ul><ul><li>By looking at material differences we can see that your ethnic background isn’t the biggest factor when understanding the different levels of attainment achieved by children but economic disadvantage and the social disadvantages this brings. </li></ul>
