Closing the attainment gap.

Closing the attainment gap.

One of the key recommendations in the Commission on Social Mobility and Child Poverty report released this week is around closing the attainment gap:

'For education policy, to ensure it closes the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their better off peers.

Without a new focus the gap in attainment between the poorest children and their better-off peers will take 20 years to even halve. The key recommendation is that the best teachers should be paid more to teach in the worst schools to help end illiteracy and innumeracy in primary school by 2025 and to halve the attainment gap in secondary school by 2020.'
