  RAEs may impact educational attainment, which is defined as an individual’s highest educational qualification (i.e., compulsory schooling, apprenticeship, or university education). For example, research by Sykes, Bell, and Rodeiro found that 5% less August-born GCSE students than September-born GCSE students chose at least one A level. Education is the social institution through which a society teaches its members the skills, knowledge, norms, and values they need to learn to become good, productive members of their society. As this definition makes clear, education is an important part of socialization. Education is both formal and informal. Formal education is often referred to as schooling, and as this term implies, it.

Consistent with this conclusion, Philip Oreopolous shows that students who are allowed to drop out of school earlier through looser compulsory schooling laws see enormous reductions in their lifetime earnings, wealth, and health. He finds that dropping out one year later increases future income by more than ten times the foregone wages during.
