Making schools better for disadvantaged students.
Around the world, governments, charities and other bodies are concerned with improving education, especially for the lowest attaining and most disadvantaged students. This concern has been magnified recently as such organisations try to help their schooling systems recover from a global pandemic that has reportedly affected the education of disadvantaged students more than their peers, on average. This talk presents up-to-date evidence on how funding might be best deployed to improve schooling and narrow the disadvantage attainment gap.
