Decision-Making in Educational Systems: The Experience in Three O.E.C.D. Countries. Country Reports: Summaries, Volume II.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
Reports of educational policy and planning problems in Greece, Portugal, and Turkey are presented in this volume. It is the second part of a study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to determine how educational systems function (see SO 011 254). In this volume each country's research team presents their work to date, discusses the problems they encountered, and proposes solutions. The Greek report is an analysis of how educational decisions are made at all levels and whether the decision-making process at critical points is satisfactory. Specifically, it examines how policies are set on high-order goals, how low-order decisions are made for implementing policy decisions, and how financial decisions are made. The report from Portugal is an assessment of the resource implications of introducing a new educational structure. It examines data collection, techniques to be employed in introducing the new system, estimation of student and teacher supply and demand, capital, and current expenditures. The Turkish report is a study of the existing administrative structure of the public education system at regional and local levels. (RM)
