The Role Of Aspirations, Attitudes And Behaviour In Closing The Educational Attainment Gap

spacer

The relationship between poverty and educational attainment is not fully understood. How can the educational attainment gap be narrowed? Which interventions have successfully improved educational outcomes and which require more supporting evidence? This paper by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation examines whether the development of children’s and parents’ attitudes, aspirations and behaviours (AABs) for education affect attainment; and considers whether interventions focused on a specific set of AABs can reduce the attainment gap.
