Laura McInerney is an investigative journalist and co-founder of the daily survey platform, Teacher Tapp. She taught for six years in London high schools, where she had her ribs broken and her classroom set on fire, before winning a Teacher of the Year award. A formidable blogger she was taken to court by the UK education secretary for asking to see documents that exposed government incompetence – three years later she walked away with the information, and became a columnist for The Guardian newspaper and editor of the investigative paper Schools Week. She now runs Teacher Tapp, a daily survey platform that she co-founded with Professor Becky Allen, which is the largest daily survey of teachers, providing unique insights for the £30billion education sector in the UK, and is a pioneer for ‘micro-learning’ among professionals. Laura is a regular public speaker and broadcaster, often appearing on BBC and Sky News, and is co-author of the book ‘The Leadership Factor’.
