Social mobility index reveals geographical variation in life chances for disadvantaged pupils
February 26, 2016
Last month the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission published its State of the Nation report, and has recently published its Social Mobility Index. The Commission is an advisory non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Education, the Cabinet Office and the Department for Work and Pensions.
The Social Mobility Index compares the chances that a child from a disadvantaged background will do well at school and get a good job across local authorities in England. For a summary of the main points of interest for governing boards click here.
