Podagogy - Season 7, Episode 6 - slang and standard English with Rob Drummond

There are a group of pupils in your school who are at a disadvantage you may have never considered. It impacts their access to the curriculum, their social interactions and their self-esteem. And the worst thing is, schools tend to make things worse, not better.

These pupils are those who do not have a strong background in ‘standard English’

This is the view of Rob Drummond, reader in sociolinguistics a Manchester Metropolitan University, and head of youth language, at the Manchester Centre for Youth studies. He explains all on this episode.
