UK Report on dealing with inequality

A newly released report State of the Nation 2019: Social Mobility in Great Britain, notes that “inequality is still deeply entrenched in Britain: there is a persistent gap in early literacy; the attainment gap at the end of secondary school has hardly shifted since 2014 and the better off are nearly 80 per cent more likely to end up in a professional job than those from a working-class background.”

The authors have identified the barriers that disadvantaged people face and make recommendations which are designed to help disadvantaged people fulfil their potential.
