Policy Programs

Icon for Education

Education is high on the policy agenda in nations worldwide, including educational systems spanning from early childhood to secondary school and post-secondary education. Education policy priorities have continued to be shaped by regional and local needs, which reflect the changing demographic and cultural characteristics of the local communities and their school-age population. Federalism has played a central role in charting educational progress in many countries. The federal system must balance centralized and decentralized governance of education and its institutions to encourage fiscal competition and results at the local and regional levels.
