Beskrivning av projektet
The project The Local Educational Ethos: a study on well-performing comprehensive schools in disadvantaged neighbourhoods (LEE) investigates how local comprehensive schools are making a difference in disadvantaged areas in metropolitan Helsinki, and how schools can fight the problems of segregation and alleviate the effects of local disadvantage to create equal opportunities for pupils in deprived neighbourhoods. We will elaborate on and investigate the functioning of the local educational ethos as part of the comprehensive school as well as of every-day life in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Pupil-allocation documents, school-specific quantitative data and ethnographic material will be analysed. The project will contribute to the academic and the societal debate on how and through which mediating mechanisms emerging social and educational disadvantages can be tackled locally with success in neighbourhoods and schools.
