Professor Chris Taylor will present his findings on Devolution and Geographies of Education: the use of the Millennium Cohort Study for 'home international' comparisons across the UK.
Using the UK Millennium Cohort Study (MCS), a recent longitudinal birth cohort study specifically designed to provide the potential for geographical analysis, Professor Taylor will present his highly publicised research on child development.
He will address the considerable variation in child development by country of the UK, with no single story of 'success'. However, the seminar finds that literacy development amongst children in England is, particularly in London, on average, greater than for children elsewhere.
Devolution and Geographies of Education is due to take place at the University of Edinburgh on Monday 7th October 2013.
