The Education Endowment Foundation was set up in 2011, with a £125 million grant from the Department of Education. So, who are the Executive Team spending this money?

So, my question is this. If none of the people who run the Education Endowment Foundation have any qualifications in Mathematics or Statistics, exactly whose expertise are they following? Would they know if they’d made an error? You might say, well they’ve obviously asked the experts, but the experts are Mathematicians and they haven’t asked them, because, no Mathematician uses the ‘Effect Size’, so whose advice are they following? The learning of millions of children may depend on it.
