State of the Nation report: Inequality ‘entrenched from birth’
Inequality will remain entrenched “from birth to work” unless the government takes urgent action, the Social Mobility Commission has warned.
Its State of the Nation report covering England, Scotland and Wales, said the situation had remained “virtually stagnant” since 2014.
It is calling on ministers to provide additional funding for older teenagers in education and to extend free childcare to more low income families.
The government said it would take the recommendations seriously.
