Study on Governance and Management Policies in School Education Systems

A new study from the European Commission analyses how quality assurance, school management, admission and other management policies and practices impact on the quality, inclusiveness and efficiency of school education. The study consolidates existing knowledge across Europe and beyond and presents new evidence on the impact of different governance and management policies and practices in the current context of increased decentralisation and school autonomy. Among others, the study shows that continuing professional development of school leaders, teachers and other staff which is needs-based, collaborative, links practice with theory, is supported by external expertise and sustained over time has a positive impact on quality.
