This week, the Education Policy Institute (EPI) has released a report exploring the relationship between secondary school admissions and parental choice. The research cross-referenced a new “national census” of parental secondary school choices with different datasets, looking to see whether pupils with certain characteristics were more likely than others to be admitted to schools with good or better Ofsted ratings and high performance outcomes.
On 11 September, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released Education at a Glance 2018.
