Today we take a critical look at numbers. Think about it: numbers are everywhere in education, from grades to impact scores to rankings. My guests today, Nelli Piattoeva and Rebecca Boden, have recently co-edited a special issue for the journal International Studies in Sociology of Education that looks at the “ambiguities of the governance of education through data” (read their open access introduction!).

Nelli Piattoeva is an Associate Professor at Tampere University in Finland where Rebecca Boden is the research director and professor at the New Social Research Programme.
