Centre research in the Guardian: creativity and the curriculum: educational apartheid in 21st century England?
One of the key foci of research and research-informed teaching at the Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies has been ‘creativity’ – who decides whether it is important and in what forms it takes, who gets to develop it and how, where it can be accessed and what kinds of creativity drive success and economic growth. So, we are delighted to see Dr Heidi Ashton’s research on arts education and culture in England, which she says has witnessed the emergence of two ‘systems’ of investment, appearing in The Guardian this week.
