2018 TASC Annual Lecture - The Great Educational Cul-de-Sac

category dublin | education | event notice author Wednesday November 28, 2018 22:57author by anon - TASC Report this post to the editors

Monday, December 3, 2018 from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

In today's society, ‘more education' is marketed as the cure-all for economic and social ills. Conventional wisdom suggests that larger education budgets reduce social exclusion and inequality; that increasing numbers of university graduates turbo-charge growth; and that more classroom learning creates greater mobility. But if these ideas are true, then why has productivity growth slowed at a time when there are more graduates than ever before? Why, then, does social mobility also seem so stubbornly low and inequality so high in this hyper-educated environment?

Keynote Speaker: Prof Alison Wolf, Economist and Professor of Public Policy, King’s College London
Respondent: Ruairi Quinn, Former Government Minister (finance and education) and leader of the Labour Party, Professor of Business, Trinity College Dublin.
Chair: Paula Clancy, TASC Board Chair and Founder of TASC

In today's society, ‘more education' is marketed as the cure-all for economic and social ills. Conventional wisdom suggests that larger education budgets reduce social exclusion and inequality; that increasing numbers of university graduates turbo-charge growth; and that more classroom learning creates greater mobility.

But if these ideas are true, then why has productivity growth slowed at a time when there are more graduates than ever before?

Why, then, does social mobility also seem so stubbornly low and inequality so high in this hyper-educated environment?

In her best-selling book, Does Education Matter: myths about education and economic growth, renowned economist Alison Wolf argues that our firmly-held beliefs about education do not ring true. She presents an empirically-based argument for why 'education as a panacea' is a misguided belief and how to rectify it through strategic thought on where education funding is allocated and why.

TASC is pleased to announce that Alison Wolf will discuss her findings as the keynote speaker at its 2018 Annual Lecture. We invite you to join us for a thought-provoking talk and an engaging audience discussion on such an important (and it seems, misunderstood) topic.
