Education Review Office - Christchurch, New Zealand

Education Review Office (ERO). ERO in Christchurch, New Zealand applied empowerment evaluation to their own activities in a workshop held July 12, 2007.

ERO provides independent external evaluation of how well each school or early childhood service is contributing to the learning and achievement of children and young people.

Their reviews and reports focus on the quality of education provided in school and early childhood services.

In the spirit of refining and improving their own work, ERO invited Dr. Fetterman to facilitate an empowerment evaluation workshop.

ERO staff applied the approach and produced productive insights into their own operations and the workshop stimulated ideas for future applications, ranging from professional development to work with the schools. Contact ERO for additional information at
