BERA Blog

About the blog

This blog was established in 2015 to provide research informed content on key educational issues in an accessible manner. The aim is to produce and promote articles that attract policymakers, parents, teachers, educational leaders, members of school communities, politicians, and anyone who is interested in education today. The Blog is edited by a small team combining academic representatives chosen by BERA’s Publications Committee and the BERA office. All content is approved for publication by one or more of this team. However, the views of the authors are their own and the views expressed on this blog are not the official views of BERA.
