Anna Vignoles - 'Parents' skills and children's cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes'

28 Oct 2011 14:34:00 GMT

Anna Vignoles from the Institute of Education speaks to Saskia Walcott about her paper 'Parents' skills and children's cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes', presented at the CMPO conference 'Early life interventions and intergenerational mobility' in October 2011. Previous research has suggested a positive intergenerational relationship between a parent's childhood cognitive skill level and their own children's skill levels. Yet we also know that individuals' skill levels change during childhood and into adulthood, not least as a result of their education, training and work experience. This paper provides clear support for the notion that identifying parents with poor literacy and numeracy skills can help us predict which children are most at risk of having poor skills themselves.

Carol Propper - Targets and Terror

25 Jan 2008 12:32:50 GMT

Waiting times have been a central concern in the English NHS, where care is provided free at the point of delivery and is rationed by waiting time. Pro-market reforms introduced in the NHS in the 1990s were not accompanied by large drops in waiting times. As a result, the English government in 2000 adopted the use of an aggressive policy of targets coupled with publication of waiting times data at hospital level and strong sanctions for poor performing hospital managers. This regime has been dubbed 'targets and terror'. Carol Propper discusses this research
