After a decade of severe fiscal crisis also impacting education, Greece was looking ahead. Now was the time to invest effectively in education and define a forward-looking path for Greece.

Building on the current reform agenda, this report offered an analysis of the context and underlying policy issues that once addressed, could contribute to raising the quality and equity of education in Greece.

Drawing on evidence and international experience, the review highlighted policy options that could guide and enhance current reform efforts in Greece in four areas:

+ effective governance
+ policies for school improvement
+ efficiency, equity and quality of the education system
+ tertiary education.

How could the governance and financing of Greek education be streamlined and improved? How could Greece achieve greater equity in educational provision and student outcomes? How could the Greek - qualified and well engaged - teaching force help promote school improvement? Last but not least, how could higher education help Greece restore prosperity? This report took a hard look at the above issues, and many others. It offered precious insights to policy makers and the education community.

Reviews of National Policies for Education offer customised, in-depth analysis and advice to assist policy makers in developing and implementing education policy. Individual reviews can focus on a specific policy area, a particular level of education or a country’s entire education system. These reviews are conducted at the request of the country concerned.
