Better Schools for All
There is a perception that there is huge variance in pupil attainment across schools, even on ‘value added’ measures accounting for the quality of the pupil intake. Attainment in many schools is deemed unacceptable by parents and appears low by international standards, leading the government to embark on a large-scale overhaul of education in England with an emphasis on increasing school autonomy, devolving pay setting and resource management to schools, in the expectation that this, coupled with a more rigorous inspection regime, will deliver improved results across all schools. This project, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, seeks to better understand the nature and determinants of school "effectiveness"
