Please join us for the Annual Memorial Lecture in honour of Professor David Raffe
'What happened to Excellence?'
Rt Hon Lord Jack McConnell, will give the 3rd annual memorial lecture in honour of the late David Raffe, Professor of Sociology of Education and Director of the Centre for Educational Sociology at the University of Edinburgh. David’s work was underpinned by a concern with issues of inequality in education and how policy change and educational reforms might impact on inequalities. This theme is reflected in this third memorial lecture to be given by Lord McConnell, 20 years after he became Minister for Education in 2000.
