The spectre of poverty in distant futures without university: reflecting on aspirations for their pre-adolescent children from parents from deprived neighbourhoods in Glasgow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This research note argues that emerging research on poverty and education in Scotland needs to adopt a longer-term focus. Drawing on the work of Glasgow Caledonian University’s Caledonian Club, it reflects on evidence that one-third of parents who consider that their primary and nursery school children will not attend university when they are older also perceive that the cost of a university education will be a barrier to participation.
