Additional Information: Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission. - "In Section One, we summarise trends in attainment according to gender, SES and ethnicity and how these factors interact. We do this through new quantitative analysis of the National Pupil Database as well as by using recent research for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), and the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU). The literature review in Section Two then draws on quantitative and qualitative sources to explore causal factors for such gaps as well as how educational attainment translates into the labour market. Each section examines students’ trajectories as they progress through the early years, primary and secondary school, through to sixth form and on to university." - "Our key findings include: 1. A White British vulnerability to school underperformance. 2. A Black penalty in secondary and higher education. 3. A broken mobility promise for Asian Muslims, particularly women. 4. Female underperformance in STEM subjects."
