*Explores the best acknowledged ways to maintain and improve school education in the UK
*Highlights ways for achieving required standards (such as DfEE standards)
*Explores the need to find the right balance between external inspection and internal self-examination as methods for identifying sustainable improvements in schools.
While predominantly directed at quality in schools, the book looks outward to quality assurance routes used in FE/HE colleges. It provides a practical opportunity for assessing the effectiveness of methods of quality measurement and shows that inspection is a necessary, but not solely sufficient, condition to develop quality.
