Clémence Perronnet, sociologist and lecturer in educational sciences at the Université Catholique de l’Ouest.
The subject: Science, a family affair.
Relationships to science in the working classes.
Here is the summary:
It is not given to everyone to become a scientist: studies in science as well as the professions to which they give access remain the prerogative of men, but also of favoured social environments. In 2013, 41% of high school students from the privileged classes were in science, compared to only 10% of young people from the popular classes.
To understand where these inequalities come from, we can look at what happens in childhood, within families. The migratory history, the educational styles or relationships to culture highlight what hinders scientific practices and tastes, but also what can make them possible.
