Drawing from a wide range of recent and popular education theories and strategies, Tom Bennett highlights how much of what we think we know in schools hasn’t been `proven’ in any meaningful sense at all. He inspires teachers to decide for themselves what good and bad education really is, empowering them as professionals and raising their confidence in the classroom and the staffroom alike. Readers are encouraged to question and reflect on issues such as:

* the most common ideas in modern education and where these ideas were born
* the crisis in research right now
* how research is commissioned and used by the people who make policy in the UK and beyond
* the provenance of education research: who instigates it, who writes it, and how to spot when a claim is based on evidence and when it isn’t
* the different way that data can be analysed
* what happens to the research conclusions once they escape the laboratory

Controversial, erudite and yet unremittingly entertaining, Tom includes practical suggestions for the classroom throughout. This book will be an ally to every teacher who’s been handed an instruction on a platter and been told, `the research proves it.’
