From School Inspectors to School Inspection. Supervision of Schools in Europe from the Middle Ages to Modern Times explores a broader and more ambivalent view of the formation of inspection and supervision over modern school systems. 

It primarily focuses on Europe, both geographically and culturally. Within this narrow space, it addresses a longer period of history, spanning from the late Middle Ages to the twentieth century. The contributions call attention to both the institutions of inspection including its relevant actors, and the processes of inspection and supervision over school teaching and school systems. The book examines how the formation of school inspection in various parts of Europe came about and how its activities related to Europe’s political and educational challenges.
