Strong performers and successful reformers in education: Education policy advice for Greece.
OECD Publishing, Paris, 2012. ISBN: 978-9-2641-1957-4. Pages: 112.
This is the hard copy of a report published electronically by OECD last year (see ACA Newsletter – Education Europe, August 2011
). This publication covers all levels of education in Greece, including one chapter dedicated specifically to “improving efficiency in tertiary education”. The report outlines the current reforms undertaken in Greece to enhance the performance of the higher education sector (allocation of resources, institutional governance and management, cost-sharing, etc.) and advises on how these reforms can be successfully implemented, with pointers to relevant experience in other countries. As a contribution to the on-going policy discussions in Greece, it recommends specific short-, medium- and long-term actions that can improve efficiency in the country’s education system.
