Abstract

How can we ensure that every student achieves at least one year’s progress for one year of schooling? Governments and schools have spent billions of dollars trying to fix education. But evidence shows that many popular solutions have little impact on student learning. In two papers, renowned education researcher John Hattie explores common policy “fixes” that distract from other, potentially better, solutions.
