Rapid Reform and Unfinished Business: The Development of Education in Independent Latvia 1991-2007
Kangro, Andris; James, David
European Journal of Education, v43 n4 p547-561 Dec 2008
Education in Latvia has changed a great deal in the last 15 years. The development of an independent and democratic state system has creatively combined elements of foreign experience and influence with the enrichment and further development of features of the earlier Latvian system. This article outlines the main steps in this process of change and then goes on to argue that there is still much to be done: firstly, to consolidate and secure the developments to date, and secondly, to enable a successful functioning within the EU in a rapidly changing wider context.
