An Enlightened Use of Educational Monitoring for Greece
Korilaki, Panayota
International Journal of Educational Management, v20 n6 p415-438 2006
Purpose: This paper aims to discuss the issues surrounding educational monitoring systems. Design/methodology/approach: This paper is a general review of the situation in Greece. Findings: This paper suggests that a superior educational monitoring system aiming to alleviate educational and social inequalities as well as discrepancies between schools and/or between classrooms would rely on both attainment and progress criteria, as these criteria operate differently and allow to bring into the fore different aspects of problems/educational inadequacies. Originality/value: The benefits and pitfalls associated with the employment of different criteria for educational monitoring are discussed, so that a new monitoring system can be suggested for the Greek setting of public primary and secondary schools. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 1 note.)
