OECD Education Policy Perspectives

The OECD Directorate for Education and Skills helps countries compare their education policies and experiences, and learn from each other through large scale assessment and surveys and comparative policy analysis. This policy papers series presents analysis for policy makers, practitioners and researchers on a wide range of policy issues covered at OECD: from pre-primary to higher education, from policy design to implementation, from student performance and well-being, to teacher training and practices, to school resources.


Improving professional leadership in Romania’s school system

School leaders in Romania primarily consider their function to be purely administrative, rather than having responsibilities for shaping the quality of teaching and learning. This education policy brief highlights how other countries and economies have developed effective school leaders by clearly defining professional standards and introducing stronger initial selection and preparation processes. The brief also provides examples of how practical learning experiences in specific areas related to school leaders’ daily work can have a positive impact on the professional development of Romanian school leaders.
