“Education research needs clear and accessible communication of data and ideas to educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders. A lifelong writer and editor, I have always enjoyed creating and shaping language, and it’s rewarding when I do these activities to help improve education.”
Having transitioned from a career in literary studies to one in education research, Charles Harding enjoys translating his passion for writing and editing into support for research that aims to improve education for all students.
