EENEE policy brief “Helping Poor Kids: Effective Policies to Reduce Educational Inequalities”
A solid education gives children the foundation for a secure future. Study after study reveals that poor children lag behind their more advantaged peers at school; this has implications for their future welfare. Effective education policies can make a difference, but the exact formula for a good school is hard to capture. What happens in the home is also important and can be affected by public policies to reduce income inequalities. You can find the whole paper on the EENEE website.
