Education Policy in Greece: A Preliminary Assessment



The future of Greece’s well-being will depend on improving educational performance to raise employment and social outcomes. The challenges are significant, as public education expenditure in Greece has declined in recent years and learning outcomes are weak.

To help the Greek government address these challenges, this report proposes a set of policy options that are important to ensure that the preconditions for educational improvement exist in Greece. Among others, they include:

  • reviewing present conditions so that schools can have the capacity and the support to deliver high quality education by supporting devolution and professional autonomy;
  • developing school leadership;
  • providing and developing assessment and evaluation capacities; and
  • ensuring that schools are available to all students and facilitating a smooth transition between schools and tertiary education or the labour market.

This report will be followed by a more in-depth analysis and review of Greece’s education system.
