The New Schools' Inspection System.
Thomas, Gerran
Educational Management & Administration, v24 n4 p355-69 Oct 1996
Reviews the OFSTED (Office for Standards in Education) school inspection system, based on interviews with 37 teachers at 6 Welsh secondary schools. Inspections emphasize judgment at the expense of advice and can be unnecessarily stressful. The process could be improved by giving shorter periods of notice, reducing required documentation, providing more immediate feedback, and improving inspector training. (21 references) (MLH)
