One response to “Podcast: Covid harms, Michelle Donelan, Scandinavia

  1. DK – I’d be interested to see if there is a correlation between the proportion of first year first degree students living at home, against the proportion from state school backgrounds. I suspect that is more clear cut. In ‘Young, Free and Single?: Twenty-Somethings and Household Change’ published nearly 20 years ago, I reflected that ‘ while sending children to university per se can no longer be viewed as a middle class activity, sending them away to university certainly can’ and that student housing and the experiences of living away were part of the cultural capital resources that certain parts of the population would continue to build and bank. Has this played out?
