Education reform and regional level (Serbia)

This report has been written in the framework of the programme "Regional
decentralisation of education management in Serbia: twinning of ministry of education regional departments with European counterparts" initiated by the Austrian Government in April 2002. It is based on a one-week fact finding mission accomplished in Serbia between the October 13-19, 2003. The aim of this report is to analyse the progress of the educational decentralisation process in Serbia in the perspective of the ongoing reform of education, and, in particular, the development of the Regional School Authorities (RSAs) of the Serbian Ministry of Education and Sport (MoES).
The report provides, in this context, first evaluation of the impact of the Twinning Project on the development of regional administration of education in Serbia and, particularly, on the RSAs as organisations. This report provides an overall evaluation of the situation of educational decentralisation policy and Serbia, with a special regard to the emerging new functions of the RSAs and their future development.
