As part of ongoing work at the Open University looking at the gap in attainment between White and non-White students in higher education, we have reviewed a wide range of literature. One specific strand we are exploring in detail is the relevance and importance of teacher and student expectations on performance and attainment.
This draft paper, submitted to the journal Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning, outlines the wide range of literature on BME attainment, and brings together the strands which focus specifically on teacher and student expectations.
The paper is co-authored by John Sanders (OU and HE consultant).
As with other projects and writing, I have put up a draft of the paper with the open invitation for you to read and comment on it. Please do take the time if you have it to read and offer your thoughts!
