Abstract

The poverty-related attainment gap is an issue for every school and every local authority in Scotland. There are many different ways to tackle it, from greater parental involvement, to improving teacher retention and quality, to pedagogical and curriculum change, to school and authority-wide management measures. Successful change will be informed by research evidence of 'what works'. This IPPI Policy Brief distills research evidence into an "at a glance" guide to reducing poverty-related attainment gaps. Its aim is to inform teaching professionals, school and education leaders, policy makers, politicians, parents and citizens about the issue.
