The value of research in education

"Educational research plays a vital role in supporting the many              

organisations, individuals and activities involved in education,

providing independent analysis and insight to promote reflection, understanding, effectiveness improvement and renewal ... Crucially, however, the best educational research ... is also itself a vital source of new ideas, insights, perspectives, and challenges current thinking, policy and practice, making a valuable and distinctive contribution to democratic life." 


From the UK Research Excellence Framework (2022, p. 169).
