Children who live in the most disadvantaged areas of England are much more likely to do badly at school and in other aspects of their lives than their wealthier peers.This report argues that English children’s zones, loosely-based on the Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ) in New York, offer a way of improving the lives and future prospects of these children.
The report explores how children’s zones in England might look and in which type of areas they should
be located. It aims to start a debate about a possible addition to the toolkit of policies aimed at improving children’s life chances.
