The expectations of education have never been higher: around the world, governments are re-shaping their education systems, transforming early years, schools and universities through far-reaching reform in curriculum, assessment, teaching, accountability and funding. As Director of the Institute of Education for five years of tumultuous change in education, Chris Husbands drew on research and kwledge about practice to set educational change into a wider context - unpicking the logic of reforms and analysing their likely impact. Voices in the Air brings together his journalism and policy commentary, and provides a wide-ranging account of the nature, shape and impact of policy reform in education.
Professor Chris Husbands has been Vice Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University since January 2016. He was Director of the Institute of Education between 2011 and 2015, leading the merger of the IOE with UCL.
