Aspirations and attainment in deprived communities

9 Jan 2009 by Karl Hallam

A recent project between the Social Exclusion Task Force, DCSF and CLG says 'Young people in certain types of neighbourhood are less likely to develop high aspirations. These neighbourhoods tend to have high levels of deprivation'.

Other key findings include:

This is interesting stuff and is closley aligned to some of the thinking Cadence Works have been doing with Professor Danny Dorling's Social and Spatial Inequalities Research Group. Some of our thoughts have been around the role Primary Schools play in shaping the success of a neighbourhood and the local residents. This is a theme we hope to follow up on during 2009.

This is why you have to deprogram your peomragmrd mind. Since kindergarten you have been told to think one way, to be a follower not a leader, to do as you are told, to not be an individual. Anyone that was an individual thinker, there work was usually disregarded, usually having the lower grades. The hardest thing to do is to erase all the negatives and untruths that we have been taught and know in our hearts that individualism is a gift.This has been a constant struggle for me, as my parents were peomragmrd and their parents, so too was I peomragmrd with this falseness.We need to know the truth and only then can we connect as one through mind and body. Only then can we step out of our box and get a healthy mind. How many times were you told, ” that’s just the way things are.”Our minds have been controlled, through television, public school, media, etc…. so to step out and control your own mind I believe you have to step out of the box that we have all been taught in and expand our minds.Your right Jack it is time for each man and woman to expand and control their own minds
