Abstract

This article reviews the English Government’s policies regarding the role that educational research should play in the school education system. Education policy since 2010 is outlined, followed by an analysis of the policy direction as stated in the 2016 White Paper “Educational Excellence Everywhere”. The role that research evidence is proposed to play in educational reform in England is explored. The extent to which a technicist, ‘what works’ view of teaching versus a more empowering version of professionalism are promoted in this White Paper is revealed. Implications are drawn for the teaching profession, universities and schools.
