Author: Gaynor, Cathy
Publication date: February 1998
As part of education and public sector reforms, many countries are decentralizing the financing and administration of education services to regional, local, or school levels. This report explores what can be learned in decentralizing teacher management from international experience. In particular, it examines what has prompted governments to decentralize teacher management functions, how they have done so, and which decentralization mechanisms have been most effective. The report aims to help guide policymakers in refining strategies that will improve teaching and learning in the classroom.
