Does money affect children’s outcomes?

Kerris Cooper,  Kitty Stewart,  October 2013
Paper No' CASEreport 80: Read Abstract | Full paper (pdf)

Summary:
This report examines whether money has a causal impact on children’s outcomes. There is abundant evidence that children growing up in lower income households do less well than their peers on a range of wider outcomes, including measures of health and education. But is money important in itself, or do these associations simply reflect other differences between richer and poorer households, such as levels of parental education or attitudes towards parenting?

Ruth Lupton,  January 2004
Paper No' CASE 076: Read Abstract | Full paper (pdf)

Summary:
This paper looks at the quality problem, exploring the relationships between disadvantaged contexts, what schools do, and the quality of schooling that they provide. The findings suggest that disadvantaged contexts impact on the organisation and processes of schools and that these effects differ significantly from one area to another, in ways that are not reflected by the usual indicators of disadvantage.
