On 19th April 2018, our Best in Class 2018 summit was held in partnership with Carnegie Corporation in New York. The event brought together leading policy-makers, academics and the teaching professions to discuss the role of structural reform, accountability, professional development and the use of research in schools in improving social mobility.
This event follows our earlier summit in London in 2016 where we raised important questions around teacher development, and how disadvantaged pupils can have fair access to the best schools and the best teachers.
Join in the conversation at #BestinClass2018.
