According to international research led by the University of Adelaide, overall population levels of academic achievement could be increased by taking steps from an early age to improve childhood education skills by as much as 5 percent, and reduce socioeconomic inequality in education by 15 percent

Researchers from the University of Adelaide’s School of Population Health and colleagues at the University of Bristol in the UK made this finding in the journal Child Development. The researchers modeled the possible outcomes of interventions for improving academic skills in children up to school age.

It was remarked by lead author Dr Catherine Chittleborough from the University of Adelaide that socioeconomic disadvantage is a known risk factor for education and related outcomes.

“Childhood socioeconomic disadvantage is associated with reduced ability to benefit from schooling, poorer educational outcomes, a lower likelihood of continuing to tertiary education, and less job success. A poor education is associated with increased welfare dependence and lower skilled jobs with lower pay, helping to continue the cycle of disadvantage,” Dr Chittleborough says.

“We’ve known for some time that intervening before the age of five can improve skills necessary for educational success, but the effect of these interventions on socioeconomic inequalities has remained unknown,” she says.

Dr Chittleborough says pre-school education is extremely important to set children on the right path. “By providing the appropriate educational support, we could make a difference to a lot of children’s lives,” she says.

<![CDATA[Health Of Teenagers Affected By Income Inequalities]]>Thu, 12 Feb 2015 06:54:37 GMThttp://blogforyouth.weebly.com/home/health-of-teenagers-affected-by-income-inequalitiesA new international study published in The Lancet has revealed that socioeconomic disparities between the richest and the poorest in 34 countries widened over the last decade.

The study on relationships and youth revealed that poor teenagers overall were more likely to be less physically active, have higher body mass indexes (BMI), and report more physical and psychological troubles, such as headaches and “feeling low.”
“A strong international focus on reducing childhood poverty and mortality in children under 5 years has not been matched by a similar response in older age groups, resulting in widening socioeconomic inequalities in adolescent health,” said lead author Drank Elgar, a psychiatry professor at McGill University in Canada, in a press release. “If health inequalities are now widening in such abundantly rich countries, particularly during the so-called ‘healthy years’ of adolescence, then these trends are especially alarming for future populations.”

Kids that grow up poor are also more likely to be at risk of smoking, binge drinking, substance abuse, and child abuse, according to the study that highlights on previously-unexplored topic of teen behaviour.

Over the summer, United spent more than £150million in a major squad rebuild after last season’s disappointments.

Nicky Butt, another former youth star, said ‘I think all clubs are changing. He added, ‘I think Man Utd was probably one of the last outstanding ones that had the connection between youth and the first team – to be fair to Liverpool now they are doing that very well – but we are still trying to do that.’

Ryan Giggs added, 'The club will never change. The history of the club is to play exciting football, always give youngsters a chance, keep to the traditions of the club.'
