Improve education in England through a better approach to policy making.
The Edpol work explores concerns over the DfE’s policy-making capacity, the fragmentation and relative weakness of non-governmental institutions and the inconsistent use of consultation, research and evidence. These could all be managed much better, as is the case in many other countries. Our intention is to help improve policy-making process, evidence and institutions – so that education policy change is more enduring and long term. This will allow schools and colleges to do what they do better, and it will further the attraction and retention of the best teachers and college lecturers.
