Administration and Evaluation Structures for Primary and Secondary Schools in the Twelve Member States of the European Community.
Barroso, Joao; And Others
This comparative analysis deals with the administration and evaluation structures for primary and secondary schools in the member states of the European Community. It addresses four major issues: (1) how to hand over large amounts of autonomy to schools without upsetting the unity of the national education system; (2) what role parents and others in the education community should have in managing schools and how to reconcile their intervention with the professional specifications of the teachers' work; (3) what administrative structures and management models will guarantee that schools are better run; and (4) how can external evaluation be reconciled with internal evaluation as the practice of self-analysis of the school. This comparative analysis represents a cross-section of situations and phenomena in the 12 European Community countries. The document is divided into three main parts. The first outlines the context. The second part, concerning the school administration, details such areas as structural characteristics, the school council, and councils for educational and pedagogic coordination and guidance. The third part comparatively analyzes school evaluation strategies of the countries in the Community. Conclusions are given. (Contains 30 references.) (RR)
