Norfolk's to be one of only two local authorities in the country to face a tough new kind of inspection by schools' watchdog Ofsted.
Instead of examining schools themselves, the inspectors will focus on the authority that runs them, to try to find out why there are so many under performing schools in the county.
The five day inspection begins next week, and will look at the leadership and support schools get, as well as seeing if their aspirations remain high enough, and if the children get enough educational opportunities.
