It is argued that the increasing criticisms of the Education Review Office which have been voiced in 1994 owe their origin to the failure of the Picot Committee to grasp that a distanced review authority which is required to act judgementally will be unable to facilitate the co-operative activity that the process of educational review requires. It is proposed that the ERO structure be altered to encourage the incorporation of peer-review in the process.
