This report independently evaluates JRF’s research programme on education and poverty, published between 2010 and 2013. 

This paper:

  • looks at how well the programme met its targets. The short-term goal was for the research to be ‘known, used and valued’ by the target audiences. The medium-term goal was to strengthen the evidence, challenge myths and stereotypes about low-income groups, and bring about ‘widespread practice change, based on high-quality evidence’;
  • concludes that the programme has achieved only limited impact on government policy and educational practice, and;
  • points to difficulties in articulating a clear and distinctive message tailored to the Welsh audience.
