THERE should be no such thing as career inspectors. Instead, inspectors should be seconded from schools for two or three years, with suitable rewards.
Such inspectors would enjoy the confidence of their peers and they themseves would benefit from seeing a wide range of teachers at work.
On returning to their schools, they could pass on good ideas to their colleagues.
