Low-income students most likely to miss out

  • Comment

As an advocate of equality for all I welcome the article by Sumita Sinha (AJ 05.10.00) but I do feel that it raises some important issues. For example, the article states that 12 per cent of those in architectural education are from ethnic minorities - this despite the fact that ethnic minorities only form 6 per cent of the population.

If architectural education is to be a true reflection of the population as a whole then some might say that ethnic minorities are already sufficiently represented. I would suggest that it may well be worth investigating the percentage of students from low-income families (whatever their ethnicity) as I am sure that these, along with women, are genuinely under-represented in our educational establishments.
