Governing Education in a Complex World

Blog: Governing Complex Education Systems


What models of governance are effective in complex education systems? In an effort to answer this question, some countries are increasing school autonomy, while others are working to refer some competences back to the national level. In all systems an increasing number of stakeholders are deciding how education should be designed, delivered and monitored.

Reflecting our societies, education systems are increasingly diverse in terms of demographics of students, teachers, and communities, as well as the values and identities we expect them to deliver.

These trends have increased the complexity of education systems, leaving decision makers on all governance levels with the question of how to successfully manoeuvre in this highly dynamic policy area.
