Divergence in children's non-cognitive skills based on family income

Jonathan Kantrowitz, Education Research Report, Apr 18, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This relates directly to the subject of my talk in Arlington on Monday. "Little is known about the relationship between family income and children’s non-cognitive (or socio-emotional) skill formation. This is an important gap, as these skills have been hypothesized to be a critical link between early outcomes and adult socioeconomic status." Sadly, the paper cited is available only by paid subscription. Because, you know, reporting on the disadvantages created by income gaps doesn't have to mean actually caring or doing anything about it.
