IOE Schools News


Happy New Year! We hope you had an enjoyable and restful break. 


In this edition of IOE Schools News, we will be bringing you a round-up of all the latest news, research and events happening at the Institute of Education (IOE). 


Following the successful launch of the public engagement series last term, ‘What if…’,

our upcoming 'Public Debates' will be tackling three major challenges for our education system: embedding evidence-informed practice in the classroom, supporting schools facing the greatest adversity, and, perhaps the biggest challenge of all - getting all kids to love maths...


In association with TES, these free events will be bringing together a range of commentators – academics, politicians, practitioners, policy makers – and pushing them to bring some radical new thinking to some of the apparently intractable issues within education. Come along and join the debate!
