Reviewing the Self-Assessment of Governing Body Performance in Colleges and Schools in England
Hill, Ron; James, Ian
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v44 n5 p745-756 Sep 2016
This study considers the rhetoric and practice of self-assessment by governing bodies of schools and colleges. The context expects governing bodies to reflect on their performance and this is supported by theoretical approaches to self-assessment of "boards". However, there are both general notes of caution and interview evidence of the complexities and limitations of self-assessment by governing bodies. The article includes advice on the basic conditions necessary for undertaking self-assessment by school and college governing bodies. In the light of the evidence and case presented, the authors urge care and sophistication when practising or considering the outcome of self-assessment by school and college governing bodies.
