Summary In the period 1851 to 1983 various education systems in Victoria consisted of, on the one hand, schools full of pupils and teachers, and on the other, administrators of various controlling bodies whose job it was to implement government policies. At the interface between the two was the Inspectorate, a body of educated people whose task it was both to ensure that educational standards were achieved and maintained, and to advocate on behalf of schools, teachers, and their communities. This account of the Inspectorate is placed against the history of the times to show how events outside the control of the education authorities impinged indelibly upon the education community, events such as the depressions of the 1890s and 1930s, the two world wars, even changes in corporate management. It is a history of the work the inspectors did, and how they did it; how the the work of the Inspectorate has shaped education in Victoria. [Blurb, ed]
