Jim Rose Death, Obituary – The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) has been in a state of mourning ever since we learned that Sir Jim Rose had passed away ever since we learned of his passing. Sir Jim served as President of the NFER for the period beginning in 2008 and continuing through 2022. As part of his duties in this position, he was tasked with offering support and direction to the Foundation by drawing on the vast experience and expertise in the field of education that he had acquired over the course of his time in government service.
“Sir Jim offered his time, support, and wise advice to the NFER throughout his 14 years as President,” stated Carole Willis, who serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the NFER. The encouragement that he offered to the group during the time that Sir Jim was in charge can be directly attributed to the period of significant change that occurred within the group during that time period. We were moved by Jim’s ability to influence others in a way that was both kind and effective, as well as by his integrity and his unwavering dedication to improving the lives of children and young people.
We were also moved by his integrity and his unwavering dedication to improving the lives of children and young people. In addition to this, Jim’s honesty and unyielding commitment to making the lives of children and young people better left an impression on me that will stay with me forever. After his passing, there is no question that Sir Jim will be mourned in the deepest possible way.
