NFER policy updates, analyses and latest news on education and related issues for the UK 2015 General Election

Now that the General Election has taken place, we wait to hear the new Government’s plans for education.

Throughout the election campaign NFER has, with our colleagues at Full Fact, worked to present the evidence behind the political claims.

We believe firmly that evidence must be at the heart of education policy, and will continue to contribute directly by providing independent evidence.

These election pages will shortly be ‘retired’ to a new dedicated policy area.
