The Pensions Commission, led by Adair Turner, made its recommendations in May and after the initial attention, there has been relatively little more reflective scrutiny of its proposals. In this issue of Research in Public Policy, we have three articles looking at pension systems and in particular two crucial aspects of the Commission’s proposals: the retirement age and means testing for state pensions.

We also have three articles on key aspects of children’s development – health, behavioural and cognitive development – and their impact on educational attainment and hence life chances.
