I made this work specifically for @kosarcontemporary - represents a new method of working and a new segment of my research into the working class and my roots. Statistically, I should not have gone to university with only 2% of white working-class boys attending higher tariff institutions. With the exception of Roma and Traveller children, white working-class boys perform the worst of any group in British schools. It’s taboo to talk about this. It’s double discrimination: underrepresented in university and then ignored.
