Understanding the social and educational outcomes of diversity
Welcome to the Diversity Effect Project Website!
Britain’s classrooms are becoming more diverse, but little is known about the effects of these changes. This collaboration between University of Bristol and local secondary schools is exploring whether more diverse classrooms have beneficial social and academic effects on our young people.
The project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and is being conducted by Dr. Shelley McKeown Jones (University of Bristol).
