4th Nov 2021, EPI and edpol Roundtable: Evidence-based education policy - can we do better?
EPI and edpol held a roundtable with respected academics (listed), who support education policy making. The roundtable discussed the “evidence gap” that existed in system level policymaking. The EEF’s success in providing clear guidance to practitioners was discussed. The majority felt that the evidence gap must be addressed directly, for example, through evidence review and synthesis, comparative policy capacity and the extension of the “what works” model.
