The effects and side effects of school inspections have been investigated only to a limited degree. Studies in Great Britain, which is the only country to have a research tradition in this area, show that school inspections can lead to behavioral changes on the part of school leaders and teachers, as well as to school improvement. These studies do not offer satisfying explanations, however, for how school inspections generate these effects. The goal of this dissertation is therefore to expand the available knowledge concerning whether Dutch school inspections lead to school improvement. The research answers the following question: Is there evidence that school inspections have any effects and, if so, how do features of schools and school inspections contribute to these effects?
