Network institutions

University of York, UK

The Network is based within the Centre for Research on Education and Social Justice (CRESJ), at the the University of York, a research-led university and member of the Russell group.

CRESJ is based within the Department of Education, University of York, UK. We pursue research regarding social justice and education in the UK and internationally. We investigate perceptions of fairness; differential rates of access and achievement that apply across individuals and social groups; and, explore learning and teaching. Our work is undertaken in a wide range of educational contexts in schools and elsewhere that include different types of learner, different locations (local to global) and different perspectives (including those that relate directly to social class, gender, ethnicity and disability).  The educational processes of learning and teaching are central to our better understanding of social justice as well as the differential rates of achievement that apply across individuals and social groups.
