Critical Approaches to Financial Delegation in Public Education in Post-Communist Romania
Popescu, Ana-Cristina
Management in Education, v25 n2 p53-57 Apr 2011
The article focuses on tracking financial delegation (introduced nationally in January 2010) as part of the broader process of education restructuring and decentralisation in post-communist Romania. The aim is to critically pinpoint some of the challenges specific to the Romanian context, such as the multitude of policies and legislation (due to the fluidity of the political system and hence of the Ministry of Education's leadership), lack of consistency in the implementation of reforms, doubled by inappropriate corresponding financial legislation and communication between the various layers of responsibility (the Ministry of Education on the one hand and the Ministries of Public Finances and Administration and Interior on the other). One year after the enactment of financial delegation, Romanian education remains a terrain of challenges; many aspects are still unclear with regard to its implementation, outcomes and long-term effects on the system and its actors which ask for further research.
