A great deal has been written about the challenges of working with disadvantaged families and their children but as yet no-one has offered any effective long-term solutions.
According to the new Organisation for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) report “Educational Opportunities for All”, too many people from disadvantaged backgrounds are falling behind in education and job market prospects. The report damningly states that, “To build more inclusive societies, every country needs to step up its education efforts to help the poorer fulfil their promise of self-realisation and have access to opportunities in life. We need to make disadvantaged children our priority!”
Self-realisation is not in any curriculum. DYC believes that the best way to help disadvantaged families grow and achieve their potential is through the implementation of dedicated personal development programs.
The saying, “Q: how do you eat an elephant? A: one bite at a time!” is apposite. Since 2002, DYC has been digesting every lesson learned and is able to offer a solution to help disadvantaged families. Despite the success of our evidence-based innovative Canterbury Christ Church University programs, over the past 16 years we have been trying without success to persuade Government, and its Departments for Education, to change its stance.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
We strongly believe that everyone who cares about the issues of these families must collaborate to find a better way forward for our children. We hope that in creating our “Campaign to Empower Disadvantaged Families”, together we can help transform society and save £billions.
