What organisations influence school policy across England and what influence do they have on education pedagogy?
Once a year, I gather a range of education organisations to rekindle a debate on what, why and who shape the educational landscape.
Who has a high or low impact?
In the diagram below, I have indicated 97 organisations and their influence on school policy, and if this impact is high or low. I have excluded think tanks and any press organisations. A critical point to make at this stage is that the graphic is purely subjective and is not peer-reviewed other than posting here to offer discussion.
You can expand the graphic.
It is worth noting, that this is an informal blog and there is no intention to harm any organisations from making these assumptions. Of course, there will be many missing, so please comment below for all readers to discuss. Where do you think the organisations should be placed differently (and why)?
- The organisations included are not think tanks or media outlets
- Influence on UK school policy influence = purely subjective (albeit informed) judgement calls / space on page
- Any ‘left-right’ political spectrum does not apply to this chart
- Additional metrics could include transparency, ‘traditional vs progressive’, scale of resources, degree of ‘evidence-informed’, and ‘years established’
