Description

Dr Alice Sullivan, Institute of Education, University of London

The Millennium Cohort Study provides us with an exceptionally rich data source with which to interrogate the relationship between social class and educational attainment in the early years of schooling, and will be used to address the extent of social class differentials in pattern construction, reading and mathematics test scores. The paper addresses whether the social class gap increases between the ages of 5 and 7, and to what extent social class effects can be explained by income, education and other factors.
