What has been done to achieve fairer and more efficient education systems, and what more can be done in the future? Stephen Gorard provides a comprehensive examination of crucial policy areas for education, such as differential outcomes, the poverty gradient, and the allocation of resources to education, to identify likely causes of educational disadvantage among students and lifelong learners. This analysis is supported by 20 years of extensive research, based in the home countries of the UK and on work in all EU28 countries, USA, Pakistan and Japan. This approachable, rich text brings invaluable insights into the underlying problems within education policy, and proposes practical solutions for a brighter future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A rather remarkable book by a rather remarkable academic. I know that students, education practitioners and researchers will make good use of this book; I sincerely hope that it falls into the hands of politicians and policy-makers where it may interrupt some of the policy-problems it identifies." Educational Research and Evaluation
"...An important and accessible synthesis of evidence relating to an array of policy areas across the UK and international settings... Every chapter outlines practical, achievable approaches to improving education and the final conclusion discusses ways that researchers and policymakers could work together more effectively. This belief that things can and should improve is an important message for all of us interested in education and policy research." Journal of Education Policy
"'Extends a growing body of critical evidence to inform policy and practice in education, with particular regard to inequalities and social justice. The book provides an expert voice and will appeal to policy makers, school leaders, teachers, students and higher education professionals as well as any individuals interested in the future of education." Feyisa Demie, Durham University
"Gorard has a habit of making his readers confront the unsettling facts of education policy in a way only a researcher of his calibre and insight can. Policy-makers, take note." Stuart Kime, Evidence-based Education
"Ambitious and eruditely written, this book is a myth-busting tour de force bringing together 20 years of evidence to tackle the most pressing issues in education policy and research." Andrew Wilkins, University of East London
