We recommend them:

”Working together to tackle educational inequality
Education in the UK is not fair. Young people from low income communities are much less likely to succeed than their wealthier peers. This impacts negatively on a young person’s ability to achieve the health, happiness and career they aspire to. This also impacts the economy – if the UK raised the educational outcomes for poorer children, GDP would increase by £6bn a year by 2030 and by £56bn a year by 2050.
The Fair Education Alliance is not prepared to accept the status quo and is committed to leading the fight against educational inequality”.

‘The International Centre for the Study of the Mixed Economy of Childcare (ICMEC) is a multi-disciplinary research centre set up in May 2007. It is based in UEL’s Cass School of Education and Communities.
ICMEC works to generate greater knowledge about Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) provision in countries which employ mixed economies of welfare and education services. ICMEC aims to critically analyse and document rapid trends toward privatisation and marketisation of early education and childcare provision in the UK, and to set these in the wider context of international changes’.
