Seminar One: Flourishing in the margins? Challenging discourses of group-based deficit
University of Leeds
22 April 2015
How are particular groups of learners constructed and (mis)represented in discourses of policy and advocacy? Why is their visibility often achieved through deficit labelling?
This BAICE Thematic Forum aims to deepen understanding around how deficit discourses have shaped the questions and objections of international educational research. The seminars are intended to explore and challenge dominant deficit discourses that have shaped the way researchers/policy makers look at specific groups in development and thematic policy areas.
