Education Policy for All

Sep 22 2022 • 30 mins

In this episode we are joined by Thomas Cowhitt, a Lecturer of Educational Change and Collaborative Improvement with the School of Education at the University of Glasgow.

We discuss the partnership among government actors, practitioners, and the public for the purpose of school improvement and how accountability politics in education has undermined the professionalism of educators. Using social network analysis this study tracks activities of a classroom practitioner as they scaled up their own maths initiative across a regional education system in England in a journey of school improvement.
