  5. Inequality – Education Inequality

England ranked 25th out of 32 countries in terms of the literacy skills of its young people. Literacy and numeracy skills are substantially higher among young people aged 16-24 than among the older generation (aged 55-65) England is the exception to the rule: while its 55-to 65-year-olds perform relatively well, especially in literacy, young people in England have not improved on these skills at all. Despite spending increases in the last few years, education spending as a share of national income is no higher than in early 2000s.
