The Scottish Educational Research Association network: Poverty and Education was launched on the 19th of November 2014, at the SERA conference being held at the University of Edinburgh. The initial steering group consisted of the co-convenors Stephen McKinney, Stuart Hall and Kevin Lowden, University of Glasgow, John McKendrick, Glasgow Caledonian University and Alastair Wilson, University of Strathclyde. Later Katie Hunter of the University of Strathclyde and Archie Graham of the University of Aberdeen would join this group. The creation of the network was within the context of the strategic renewal and development of the SERA networks. The strength of a SERA network is that it is a national network with an international outlook that is under the auspices of SERA and not a particular Scottish university. This national/international dimension facilitates an academic dialogue and collaboration among some of the leading academic researchers in this field and across the universities. One of the main aims of the Poverty and Education network is to highlight new issues and new research in the impact of poverty on education.
