How does the status of teachers vary across different countries? And how does it compare to other occupations like doctors, nurses, policemen? Is there any correlation between the status of teachers and the academic performance of pupils? If we pay teachers better do we get better outcomes for pupils?
There is a consensus that anti-immigration sentiments played a role in the referendum vote. To examine what is behind these attitudes, a team from NIESR and Birkbeck, University of London carried out 12 experimental focus groups with 105 Leave and Remain voters in the town of Sittingbourne in Kent. The research was funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
This workshop will bring together recent work by Garry Young and Peter Dolton of NIESR as well as the research led by Stephen Aldridge, Director for Analysis and Data at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
