Inspectorate Profile: Denmark

The system of evaluation in Denmark is not centred around or built upon a type of "full inspection" of schools. On the contrary: it builds strongly on the own responsibility of the municipalities and the schools to carry out their own evaluations and to take measures to continually improve the quality of their education. For this education the government has given goals and objectives and broad guidelines as a framework; and also obligations to really do the evaluations. 

For a correct understanding of the evaluation landscape in Denmark it is very important to keep in mind the difference between the general public system of schools and the system of "private, independent schools".
