UK: 'Elitist curriculum not serving white working classes'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Conversations about issues like "white privilege" and "toxic masculinity" could further alienate them.

Academics told MPs the white working classes faced a "status deficit" as the national conversation had become "much more consumed" with other groups.

They said these pupils were "stuck" in terms of their achievement at GCSE.

The Education Select Committee was taking evidence on Tuesday about the issue of white pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds being left behind.'
