Closing The Attainment Gap In England’s Secondary Schools
School improvement policies will not be enough to close the attainment gap between rich and poor pupils in England’s schools, according to this report by the Institute for Public Policy Research. Pupils from deprived areas are about as likely to attend a school rated ‘satisfactory’ or ‘inadequate’ as wealthier pupils are likely to attend a school rated ‘outstanding’. It is therefore vitally important to improve the quality of schools in England.
