Springtime changes at the IEE

Posted on 29 March 2018

This spring sees some changes at the Institute for Effective Education. Bette Chambers is retiring, although will still continue to be involved in some IEE activities. Jonathan Haslam, the deputy director, will become the IEE’s director from 1 April 2018. The IEE will continue to work to improve education for all children by promoting the use of evidence in education policy and practice, particularly by supporting the Research Schools Network.

Baroness Estelle Morris, Chair of the Trustees of the IEE commented:

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have worked with Bette. She has been at the IEE since it was founded and must take considerable credit for everything that has been achieved. Her passion to make sure that research is relevant to what happens to children has been a driving force of the organisation and she has been part of the movement that has grown up around evidence informed education. The trustees and staff have valued her professional advice and expertise as well as her personal thoughtfulness and kindness.

“We wish Bette well and know that she will continue to play a part in the world of education.”
