West, Anne; Wolfe, David – London Review of Education, 2019

Godfrey, David; Brown, Chris – London Review of Education, 2018
This article examines the role of research and development within England's school system. From a range of literature past and present we argue that six features (three dimensions) should form the focus for action at the institutional, systemic and policy levels. Applying these stress tests to the current system, we suggest that an effective…

Golding, Jennie – London Review of Education, 2018
This article proposes a reframing of the purposes of mathematics education for the twenty-first century that combines apparently divergent philosophical approaches, arguing that the consequent empowerment should as a matter of individual equity be available to all young people (as well as of benefit to wider society).
