Wednesday General Session

Anthony Jack

Assistant Professor of Education at Harvard University | Author of The Privileged Poor

When Anthony Jack arrived at his first year of university—amongst peers talking about their travels abroad, and their lavish summer homes—he wondered: “where are all the other poor students?” Since then, he’s made it his career to study the effects of being a poor student on a college campus. An Assistant Professor of Education at Harvard, Anthony breaks underprivileged students down into two categories—the “privileged poor”, low-income students at upper-crest academies; and the “doubly disadvantaged”, those studying at public, typically distressed schools—and how both groups experience a distraction from learning. In this talk, Anthony addresses how it’s not just enough to get in to school: he covers the costs of social exclusion lower-income students face, and offers some new, nuanced insights on what excellence and equity in schools actually looks like.
