Decentralization and student achievement

February 25, 2016 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

The CEA has released another issue  in the Facts  on Education series titled What is the impact of decentralization on student achievement?   The question ‘does decentralization improve academic achievement’ is asked. The term “decentralization” in public education refers to a process that transfers administrative and financial decision-making powers from central Ministries of Education to local governments, communities, and schools.

Selected from the one-page report: 

  • Decentralization works if local players are given the resources and empowerment to attain increased student achievement.
  • When decentralization encourages increased local participation in school management, it improves accountability and responsiveness to student needs and fosters better use of resources, thus improving conditions for students.
  • When teachers are empowered and schools can make decisions that directly affect their own students – under the umbrella of a broader vision for a school district – decentralization is at its best.
