As educational underachievement is a long-term policy issue in Northern Ireland, we expect high levels of engagement from stakeholders.
Professor Ruth Leitch has worked extensively in the area of Education Policy in Northern Ireland and beyond, focusing in recent years on issues of (in)equality in Education. She led an important study ‘Investigating Links in Achievement and Deprivation’ (ILiAD), the findings of which were highly significant for academic and policy communities alike.
