23 SES 10 C, Governing By Inspection II: National Developments
Symposium, Part 2
A cadre of school inspectors with different backgrounds visit around a thousands schools annually in Sweden. Do they ‘make a difference?’ This paper analyses perceptions of inspection effects as they are expressed in interviews with inspectors and leading officers at the Swedish Schools Inspectorate. Theories of evaluation influence (Mark & Henry 2004) and of constitutive effects (Dahler-Larsen 2011a, b) underpin the analysis. The inspectors’ views about what is affected and in what ways are brought forward, illuminating the relation between the local (municipality) and institutional (school), and the inspection process. The effects through the eyes of the inspectors, their ‘assumptive worlds’, are discussed in terms of ‘doing governing’ (Ozga & Segerholm 2011) with particular attention to Jacobsson’s (2006) concept ‘meditative governing practices’.
