THE FIRST EVER BOOK ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCHOOL INSPECTION ACROSS EUROPE

Essential reading for inspectors, school leaders and academics Commissioned and supported by the leading European group of school inspectorates, the Standing International Committee of Inspectorates SPECIAL DISCOUNT PRICES FOR SICI MEMBER ORGANISATIONS AND THEIR STAFF

This ground-breaking book by Adrian Gray, a former SICI Executive Committee member, shows that school inspection has been a key factor in the European educational landscape for 200 years. Its impact was evident to commentators from the early 1800s, but its history was often turbulent due to rapid political and social change. The book also shows how inspection and evaluation approaches have changed and developed, especially over the last fifty years, reflecting changing ideas about school leadership and accountability – and also responding to technical changes like new data and exam systems. It is a story that combines both politics at a continental scale and the human details of life as an inspector from Portugal to Russia.
 
This is an important step for SICI as we seek to grow and extend our influence on best inspection practice. We will be developing a number of conference presentations around the content of the book which will be adapted to the needs of audiences such as policy makers, school leaders and new school inspectors. The content will be of great value for education policy makers and inspectors globally as we see how inspection works in different contexts.
