PROGRESS MADE BY HIGH-ATTAINING CHILDREN FROM DISADVANTAGED BACKGROUNDS
Child poverty is a huge waste of young talent. This is the outcome of a study released by the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission, which confirms that education is a key driver of social mobility and reducing educational inequality. This report tracks the performance of high-achieving pupils from poor backgrounds through the education system and compares their trajectories with those of their more advantaged peers.
