Women's Participation in the Greek Educational System.
The evolution of women's participation in the Greek educational system during the last 20 years is considered, with emphasis on present developments. The pattern of this evolution along with educational policy measures and reforms are also discussed. Factors related to women's achievement patterns and mobility between educational levels are also analyzed. While all educational levels are examined, emphasis is on the upper-secondary level as the crucial point of transfer to higher education. Tables are provided on: sex differences in rates of illiteracy, average years of schooling, enrollment rates by educational level, success rates and achievements in primary and secondary education, and success rates of applicants to higher education; and women's participation in higher education by field of study and in specific higher education institutions in Greece. Background information is presented on the Greek selection system for higher education and measures that have been enacted by the government to reform college admissions. Finally, specific changes in the college entrance examination requirements are identified. (SW)
