The Legacy of Plowden
ACERT mini-conference and 2017 AGM
23rd September 2017

50 years ago a report into Primary Education recognised that most Gypsies and Traveller children were not getting into school, and those who did, weren’t being treated well. Campaigners for Traveller Rights had made submissions to the enquiry, and after it was published used it to raise awareness and campaign for the education and other rights of the communities.

To celebrate the anniversary, ACERT’s 2017 mini-Conference and AGM will review what has, and has not, been achieved, and where we can go from here. Over the past few year, ACERT conferences have been interesting and enjoyable events, with the voices of community members to the fore; we believe this year’s will continue in this vein. Please come and share the day with us.
