Demand-Sensitive Schooling?

Evidence and Issues

image of Demand-Sensitive Schooling?

Many educational experts are identifying  a critical shift from supply-led systems — operating to procedures decided by educational authorities, schools and teachers — towards systems which are much more sensitive to demand.  But, whose demands should these be? What are they? And how will schools recognize and cope with them?  This book examines different aspects of the demand concept and presents international evidence from Austria, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Denmark, England, Finland, Hungary, Japan, Poland, Spain, and the United States to reveal attitudes and expectations.

The Framework of Questions for the Country Reports

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This section seeks to clarify whether and how the notion of “demand” features in public debate on education in each country, and more generally how schooling is regarded in the public arena, especially the media. It also addresses “demand” through the ways that schools meet or not the expectations of society at large and of different groups within society (parents specifically are the focus of Section 2).
