A talk by Carlo Barone (Sciences Po) within the Inequality Working Group (13 February 2018)


This presentation discusses the potential of interventions promoting shared book reading between parents and children to foster early language development and to reduce socio-economic inequalities in educational opportunities. I present the results of a randomised controlled trial targeting 880 families with children aged 4 attending 22 schools in disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the city of Paris and consider treatment impacts on parental reading frequency & receptive vocabulary.
