Book on childcare, early education and social inequality includes contributions from ISOTIS researchers

The book "Childcare, early education and social inequality: an international perspective", published by Edward Elgar Publishing, includes contributions from ISOTIS researchers: Jan Skopek (also editor), Martine Broekhuizen, Paul Leseman, Thomas Moser, Pauline Slot, and Henrik D. Zachrisson.

"Recognising that social change over recent decades has strengthened the need for early childhood education and care, this book seeks to answer what role this plays in creating and compensating for social inequalities in educational attainment. Compiling 13 cross-national and multidisciplinary empirical studies on three interrelated topics, this book explores how families from different social backgrounds decide between types of childcare, how important parental care and resources at home are for children’s educational success, and the consequences of early education and care for children’s diverging educational destinies."
