COVID-19: do we need to redefine the priorities for school inspections?
The disruption to schooling as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic during the spring and summer in the northern hemisphere has necessitated changes in all aspects of school policy and practice, including the purpose, priorities and practices of Inspectorates of Education. ICSEI’s Crisis Response in Education Network has chosen to discuss these issues with delegates from Inspectorates of Education around the world in a series of three webinars.
This webinar discussed:
- What aspects of quality should inspectorates be prioritising post-pandemic? (Why?)
- Are these different from the quality standards your inspectorate would evaluation before the pandemic? If so, how?
These key questions were discussed by 37 delegates from academia and inspectorates from 13 countries. The report can be found here:
