Improving Schools through Evaluation: The Experience of Catholic Schools in South Africa
Potterton, Mark; Northmore, Colin
International Studies in Catholic Education, v6 n2 p178-190 2014
This article addresses the development of quality assurance approaches in South Africa, with particular reference to Catholic schools. It also addresses questions of why whole school evaluation in general has failed to play any meaningful role in improving the quality of schools in South Africa. Reference is also made to specific school cases. The article considers the role of both pressure and support in the education system and ends with some recommendations on how to ensure that school evaluation impacts on school improvement. Catholic education authorities are asked to take note.
