The Development and Reform of School Administration in Greece: A Primary School Perspective
Saiti, Anna
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v37 n3 p378-403 2009
The purpose of this article is to present and investigate the current situation in Greece regarding the management of primary schools and to underline the need for reforms in the field of school administration. The coordination of the relationship between the state and schools is an issue vital for both: primarily for schools, as they require a degree of independence to do their work on behalf of society, justly and properly; and for the state, which wishes to assure itself that the schools are adequately serving the needs of society and providing an efficient and comprehensive system of education. This article assesses the Greek primary school system in terms of avoidable bureaucratic processes and recommends strategies for improving the efficiency of school administration. (Contains 4 figures, 1 table, and 9 notes.)
