Reviews of National Policies for Education: Greece.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
Examiners from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development were asked by Greek education authorities, seeking criticism and the assurance that they were on the right road for Greece compared with other countries and running in the right direction, to consider education policies in Greece as they appeared in 1979, a year of many reforms. Part 1 contains the "Examiners' Report." The examiners pinpointed several issues that they considered critically important. They were anxious to know, for example, to what extent K-12 curricula and teaching methods had been modified with the advent of 9 years of compulsory schooling. They raised questions about the efficiency and equity of the selection system. They wanted to know the reasons for creating two types of upper secondary education school and whether the technical vocational type is suitably equipped to challenge comparison with the general education type. They inquired whether the financial and material resources made available were sufficient to make the reforms effective. Part 2 provides the Greek delegation's answers to the examiners' questions. Part 3 contains a summary of the background report prepared for the examiners by the Greek Ministry of Education, describing the education system before and after reforms. (RM)
