Politics in Education Summit: Responsibility, Remit and Controls


The Royal Society, London, Monday 2 November 2015

"Is political interference and frequent policy change creating a barrier to raising standards in education?"

BELMAS members may be interested in the Politics in Education Summit, an event that will bring together practitioners, policymakers, stakeholders and experts from across education to explore and debate key issues around the role and remit of government in setting education policy and how this interacts with political ideology.

With an incredible speaker line-up, the Summit will question whether changes to the governance processes might facilitate better decision making and policy implementation, and will explore what controls and safeguards are in place to ensure that educational policies and resulting reforms are based on evidence rather than changing political ideologies.
