How Effective Is the Research and Development Ecosystem for England's Schools?
Godfrey, David; Brown, Chris
London Review of Education, v16 n1 p136-151 Mar 2018
This article examines the role of research and development within England's school system. From a range of literature past and present we argue that six features (three dimensions) should form the focus for action at the institutional, systemic and policy levels. Applying these stress tests to the current system, we suggest that an effective ecosystem of research-informed schools is as yet not being fully realized. We argue that the keys to improving this are to change the structures, cultures and incentives that bridge the research-practice divide, and to align accountability arrangements to allow schools to learn through enquiry.
