Education policy (lead: Hans Sievertsen)
Research focuses on school choice, pupil motivation, and labour markets for teachers and academics. Our findings are of direct relevance to policy makers, for example the Department for Education and Skills, and to schools and Higher Education Institutions.
Topics we address include:
- School choice and segregation
- Pupil motivation and effective teaching
- Teacher and academic labour markets.
