Academies: It's Time to Learn the Lessons. NFER Thinks: What the Evidence Tells Us
Worth, Jack
National Foundation for Educational Research
Academies are now a part of the English school landscape. Future policy should focus on learning the lessons from the growth of academy schools. In this "NFER Thinks," the author presents the case that any future expansion in the number of academies should be motivated by a clear vision of the long-term outcomes for learners that academisation is aiming to achieve. The author also argues that evaluation should be embedded in the process.
