This blog is for teachers and parents interested in their children’s education. It is here for those who don’t have enough time to research the innovation that their Senior Management Team says will save the universe and expects you to roll out in your classroom next week.
Two years ago, I decided to give up my life to learn how research works and found out that a great deal of educational research is fundamentally bad. Most of what you believe to be canon is likely to have a very poor foundation indeed. This blog will be an attempt to examine educational research and pedagogies and ask: what is the evidence?
If all this sounds interesting, then this blog is for you.
