CEPS vas vabi na prvi Seminar Šolskega polja v tem študijskem letu. Kot osrednjo temo večera se bodo tokrat posvetili enemu izmed najbolj odmevnih sodobnih družboslovnih del, Pikketijevemu Kapitalu ter vprašanju o vlogi edukacije pri zagotavljanju bolj enakopravnih socialnih dosežkov. Za uvod v temo bo poskrbel mednarodno priznani gost: profesor Roger Dale z Univerze v Bristolu (Anglija), ki smo ga pred šestimi leti že imeli priliko srečati na Seminarju Šolskega polja.
Vljudno vas torej vabijo, da se jim pridružite v četrtek, 13. oktobra 2016 ob 17.00 uri v sobi 026 na Pedagoški fakulteti Univerze v Ljubljani, Kardeljeva pl. 16, Ljubljana.
Roger Dale: Does Piketty’s Capital help us understand how education can contribute to more equal social outcomes? Lecture given in the School Field Seminar, University of Ljubljana, 13 October 2016
Piketty’s Capital has created enormous interest around the world, not least in educational circles. One reason for this may be his readiness to refer, in a book largely focused on economic history, to the ways that education has, and might, contribute to better and more equal social outcomes. This presentation welcomes this, but argues that Piketty’s suggestions remain somewhat limited due to his adherence to a more or less distributional, rather than relational, approach; in particular, the assumption that it is the distribution of educational credentials that accounts for their contribution to reducing inequality via education is mistaken. Instead, it advances arguments which recognize the separate contributions of the content of credentials, and their valorization. The main focus of the paper is thus on the different ways that educational credentials are realized, especially on social class grounds, which, it is argued, is a major basis for the maintenance of educational inequality. * * * “Throughout the book, I emphasize the importance of educational institutions (in particular the extent of equal access to high-quality schools and universities) and fiscal institutions (especially the chaotic advent of progressive taxation of income, inheritance and wealth).”
