Global Health Histories Seminar

With the popularity of cycling soaring across Europe, many countries see cycling as a way to promote well-being and reduce environmental pollution. But there are varying cultural debates around whether cyclists should be made to wear helmets. This seminar draws together figures from medicine, academia, and cycling activism to discuss whether helmets should be made compulsory.

Lecturer: David Jesson (Associate, University of York)

Abstract: There have been numerous studies showing that Grammar Schools had become
‘ghettoes for the privileged rather than a ladder of opportunity for economically disadvantaged
pupils’. There have been no significant academic studies supporting the opposing claims.
In 2016 Theresa May promised to improve social mobility by expanding Grammar schools thus
‘helping create a truly meritocratic Britain’. Existing Grammar schools would be expected to
contribute meaningfully towards this by ‘ensuring they admit a proportion of pupils from lower
income households’. To fund this government is providing £50m per year to create an extra 30
extra places in each year for each of the first 16 schools.
In this seminar we review the 16 schools’ to compare these with other existing Grammars to show
where they stand in relation to:

(1) Recent admission of ‘disadvantaged’ pupils; identifying the challenges which their

new commitment involves

(2) Other Grammar schools which have successfully recruited substantial numbers of

‘disadvantaged’ pupils.

We identify the funding these schools currently receive to assist in the education of their current
‘disadvantaged’ pupils, to compare with the amounts each school will receive for this somewhat
‘speculative’ project.
We raise questions about the accountability mechanisms which need to be in place to ensure value
for money.

There will be some refreshments available after the seminar at 5pm.
