📑 Response to Labor’s $280m Evidence Institute

Bookmarked Labor proposes a new $280m Evidence Institute for Schools, but where is the evidence we need it? by Emma Rowe (EduResearch Matters)
The ALP’s pledge to fund an ‘Evidence Institute for Schools’ lacks attention to what is needed most—funding for schools and classrooms. Further, the effectiveness of this large sum of funding spent on an institute is premised on the notion that it will produce significantly more effective research than is already available. Here’s what could be done
Emma Rowe and Trevor Gale suggest that rather than spending money on a new institute, the government should instead:

  • investigating more efficient ways to encourage the uptake of educational research in our schools and universities
  • improve overall accessibility of education research to the public
