Education is one of the most important predictors of people’s life chances. Building an education system that offers all children and young people the chance to reach their potential is essential to tackling wider inequalities in society.

At this online event we will discuss a number of questions: How does education shape people’s outcomes later in life? When do differences in educational attainment emerge? And what can policymakers do to build a more equal education system?
