The Report highlights an interesting snippet that can be applied to educational achievement.

“Converter academies” (schools that voluntarily changed their status under policies introduced by the Conservative government post-2010) performed less-well than “Sponsored Academies” – those schools identified as “underperforming” in terms of exam results and converted to Academies under the previous Labour government.

This suggests that where time, effort and money is applied to particular schools and students, exam results are more-likely to improve – and while this is only one dimension of “educational achievement” it provides some useful evaluative material for exam questions on this topic.
