Evidence in the news

Parliamentary event builds support for Education Media Centre

MORE THAN 70 POLICYMAKERS, journalists, educators and researchers attended a parliamentary event in November to hear more about the proposed Education Media Centre (EMC).

The EMC aims to capture and spread knowledge about what works in education, by directly supporting the national media. Speakers talked about how the EMC will provide journalists with authoritative, independent, and accessible insights from education research, and so help them base their work on robust evidence.

The aim is to raise the quality of information that teachers and the general public receive through the press, and so improve practice in classrooms and outcomes for children.
