Given the costs attending such design James, I hold a high standard of evidence. Quickly we move from dubious supposed empirical evidence to school case studies that we can’t extrapolate much from. Would outcomes just be as good with relatively little expense on school design?

That is a big 'if' that needs some good evidence. Is a "change or evolution in practice" any different to a 'change in pedagogy' anyway? Carts and horses again?

School leadership would hugely benefit from the " treatment" as described in this blog from in my opinion. It could see a sea-change in leadership training too - fewer 'leadership styles' & more observable behaviours that see people learn & improve.

Yes - I don't think the research evidence cited substantiates the claims in the article - but I suppose it was ever thus!

Can I ask why all of the future courses have been named ‘closing the vocabulary gap’? I have already been personally asked whether the course is based on my book, of the same name, which of course it isn’t. It creates a very unfortunate confusion.

How far does being funded by IBI Associates (a new buildings/‘spaces’ design company), & their giving a “practical view on emerging results”, compromise the findings? How did they ignore teacher level effects (especially as results indicate no school level differences)?
