Welsh research

15th September 2000 at 01:00
YOUR article (TES, September 1) on Economic and Social Research Council grants implied that the teaching and learning research programme will not be undertaking any research in Wales.

This is not the case. One of the projects will undertake half its research in partnership withCardiff education authority, providing systematic and comparative evidence (with Bristol) on how collaboration between teachers and parents can raise attainment.
