Education gap between rich and poor stops closing and is likely to grow again | UK News

The attainment gap between poorer pupils and their more affluent counterparts could widen after it stopped closing for the first time in a decade, according to a new study.

The Education Policy Institute’s (EPI) findings have highlighted major issues within education for more vulnerable and deprived students.

The report is likely to cause alarm given the halt in progress occurred before the coronavirus pandemic had hit the education system.

Researchers found that disadvantaged pupils in England are 18.1 months of learning behind their peers by the time they finish their GCSE’s – the same gap as five years ago. It also found that the gap at primary school increased for the first time since 2007.

And for the most persistently disadvantaged students, the attainment gap had actually widened in every year but one since 2014.

Frustrations grow over school funding, budget cuts

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — As the wait for a federal stimulus continues, school districts in New York continue to announce budget cuts. Students, parents, and teachers from across the Capital Region voiced frustrations Friday over school funding outside the State Capitol building.

“It’s crazy to me that casinos are being opened up, schools are being budget-cut. Like it just doesn’t make sense to us,” said Schenectady High School Senior Shazia Pirzada.

Analysis from the New York State Education Department shows about 57% of school funding comes from localities, 40% from the state, and 3% from the federal government. But, all of that varies from district to district.
