Study on Association between Moving Home/School Frequently and the Early Childhood Formal Educational Achievement


A recent UK study researched the association between moving home and moving school frequently and the early childhood formal educational achievement. The study found that children who moved home frequently were more likely not to achieve in formal assessments compared with children not moving. Therefore, the report recommends that children experiencing frequent mobility may be disadvantaged and should be closely monitored. The researchers believe that additional educational support services should be afforded to children, particularly those who frequently change school, in order to help them achieve the expected educational standards.
