Director Loic Menzies was principle researcher for the Fair Educational Alliance’s (FEA) 2014 report card. It analyses the current state of play for children and young people according to a set of key metrics.
The report argues that:
“Education in the UK is not fair. Young people from low income communities are much less likely to succeed than their wealthier peers. We know this. And we know that this impacts negatively on a young person’s ability to achieve the health, happiness and career they aspire to. We also know that the reasons for this educational inequality are not simple and lie in an intricate web of social issues. Addressing such complex problems will take more than one institution, one organisation, or even one government.”
