Our research assesses the performance of education services and how to improve them.

Education is a key priority for any government. Our research, events and commentary analyse changes to funding and demand for schools and the impact of government policies on their performance and on the workforce that delivers them.

We explain how the education system operates, evaluate models of assessment, and assess decision making during the pandemic.
