Closing the gap

Effective Classroom Strategies for Closing the Gap in Educational Achievement for Children and Young People Living in Poverty, Including White Working-Class Boys

This research review tells us what works in closing the gap in educational achievement for children and young people living in poverty, including white working-class boys. It is based on a rapid review of the research literature involving systematic searching of literature, and places a focus on the highest-quality evidence of ‘what works’. It summarises the best available evidence that will help service providers to improve services and, ultimately, outcomes for children, young people and their families.

The Institute for Effective Education carried out this review on behalf of the Centre for Excellence and Outcomes in Children and Young People’s Services (C4EO).
