Summary

This text traces the development of different forms of inspection. It draws on a range of sources such as rigorous and informed research and inspection evidence, writing by key figures, teachers' own experiences, newspaper headlines and other comments, whilst remaining jargon-free. This topical book includes summary questions and other signposts for the reader, as well as a fully annotated bibliography. It also pays attention to other types of school self-evaluation. James Learmouth explores the impact of inspection on schools in difficulties, and outlines the ways in which research and other evidence suggests that schools do improve.
