The effective use of school resources is a policy priority across OECD countries. The OECD Reviews of School Resources explore how resources can be governed, distributed, utilised and managed to improve the quality, equity and efficiency of school education.

The series considers four types of resources: financial resources, such as public funding of individual schools; human resources, such as teachers, school leaders and education administrators; physical resources, such as location, buildings and equipment; and other resources, such as learning time.

This series offers timely policy advice to both governments and the education community. It includes both country reports and thematic studies.



Composition of the OECD Review Team

Anthony Levitas has been providing, for the last twenty years, analytical and political advice on local government reform to elected officials and civil servants in Central and Eastern European Countries. He helps policy makers decide what responsibilities sub‑national governments should have and where they should get the money to pay for them. In particular, he provides support in designing predictable, adequate, and equitable transfer systems; in developing sound rules for local government taxation, budgeting, investment planning, and financial reporting; and in creating and regulating municipal debt markets. He has also worked extensively on school management and finance. Anthony has been instrumental in developing and implementing local government reform programmes in Poland, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Albania. He has also worked in Ukraine, Turkey, Mongolia, Georgia and Armenia. In Poland, where he has lived for most of the past two decades, he has been deeply involved with the decentralisation of primary and secondary education and until recently served as Research Director of the Ministry of Education’s Local Government School Management unit.
