Strategic Education Governance - Background
Governing education systems is becoming increasingly complex. Today, governance processes involve a growing number of stakeholders, interacting with each other in many different ways, in multiple time-scales and at several levels simultaneously. Relationships among these stakeholders are increasingly dynamic and open to negotiation, and a central question for education governance is thus how education systems can provide high quality educational opportunities for all.
Strategic Education Governance (SEG) addresses the need to develop flexible and adaptive governance processes that improve the effectiveness and sustainability of reform in today’s complex education systems. It aims to help countries develop smarter governance arrangements, sensitive to context and capable of delivering improvement by building upon robust knowledge systems, stakeholder cooperation and constructive accountability.
