DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

This document introduces educational disadvantage as ‘those educational outcomes which are shaped by socio-economic influences rather than by individual aptitudes’ and explores the topic accordingly. It maps out some of its key dimensions and the factors associated with it - particularly the influences exercised by family, school, neighbourhood and public policy.
The document outlines what is known about educational disadvantage, its consequences and how the problem might be addressed.

The section entitled ‘Public Policy Influences’ tabulates initiatives addressing educational disadvantage and early school leaving, and highlights the influence of virtually every aspect of public policy on the situation.

Consultation with a broad range of professionals with an expertise in this area and a review of some of the growing body of literature in the field of educational disadvantage informed the preparation of the document

COMMENTO SULLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

The document is well written and clearly laid out. An abundance of footnotes on the foot of each page indicates references and source material informing the reader of resources and research carried out on educational disadvantage in Ireland and abroad
