Evaluation in the Transnational "Management by Projects" Policies
Heikkinen, Anja
European Educational Research Journal, v3 n2 p486-500 2004
There is a supranational tendency in educational governance towards a "management by projects" policy, which substitutes democratic procedures and norm-based control in the materialisation of educational justice. The organisational level becomes crucial for the management of education and the pressure to conceive education as a managerial activity increases. At the same time, educational expertise in public administration becomes substituted by subcontracted, policy-led research. In the context of transnational governance the civil service is turning into a busnocracy, which is responsible for the quality of education to the global markets instead of to people. The article discusses this transnational policy agenda through one European Union project which aims at developing tools for transnational evaluation of re-integrative programmes targeted at students who have problems in following the mainstream pathways to vocational education. (Contains 4 tables, 1 figure and 3 notes.)
