Skip to 0 minutes and 10 seconds In spite of great efforts between 2000 and 2015, we have not achieved education for all. It was a tall order. And advances were made. But there are still too many children and young people not in either formal or informal education. Together, we are going to spend the next three weeks looking at ideas around inclusion, equity, and participation in education. Hi. My name is Dr. Margaret Sutherland, and I work here in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow. So, what can we do? What should we do? What needs to change if we are to meet the sustainable development goal where we are to ensure inclusive, quality, equitable, education and lifelong learning for all by 2030?

We’ve also included the voices of people, teachers, students, academics, who have experienced barriers to education or who have worked with young people who’ve experienced barriers.

I’m really looking forward to welcoming you to this course and to learning with you and from you as we progress through the weeks
