The article discusses some of the top-down reforms enacted by the state in Nicaragua. Here the focus is on decentralisation of governance and parental role in decentralised schools. In particular, the article examines the meaning of decentralisation in education in the Nicaraguan context and specific roles the state and parents play in the decentralised system of education—within economic and political transformation. The article examines critically how the proposed decentralisation arrangements are interpreted by parents and their role in the management of the school and in how the parents are involved the educational processes of their children. The article is a case study of politico-educational reform, with reference to decentralisation process and the transfer of decision-making process to the local level, or deconcentration.
