Why education inequalities matter and how they can be reduced

by Anna Vignoles
  • Key point 1
    There are very few systems in the world that don't have education inequalities. Pupils who experience them are more likely to suffer once they join the labour market.
  • Key point 2
    There are two types of education inequality: the first is the difference in achievement levels that you see in the system. The second is inequality between children within schools.
  • Key point 3
    One solution is targeted spending, where the State deliberately spends more on children who are likely to be otherwise at a disadvantage.
