In Conversation with Professor Cristina Iannelli & Dr Adriana Duta: Understanding the Attainment Gap @ Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh
Apr 26 @ 1:15 pm – 4:30 pm

Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh.

The factors behind variations in attainment are complex and interconnected. This ‘In Conversation’ event will discuss the importance of analysing data at various levels (i.e. individual, family, school and area level) to understand the mechanisms through which the attainment gap comes about. It will focus not only on the ‘risk’ factors but also on the ‘enabling’ factors behind the more positive outcomes of some disadvantaged pupils. Schools operating with high levels of disadvantaged pupils will also be considered, as will the questions of whether different policies are needed to tackle inequalities, or whether this is simply a matter of better targeting and investment of resources.

The event will begin with a keynote talk, with subsequent discussion groups that will bring together interested individuals from across sectors.
