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.



School organisation and operating schools in Estonia

This chapter analyses how school organisation and the approach to operating schools in Estonia can contribute to the effective use of resources at the school level. It analyses the profile of school leaders as well as how responsibilities for school organisation and operation are distributed in Estonian schools. Furthermore, it discusses school quality assurance and development, outreach to parents and communities and the use of school facilities. The chapter places particular emphasis on areas of priority for Estonia such as the lack of feedback school leaders receive, the need to sustain capacity building for school development, and the lack of attractiveness of the school leadership profession. It also reviews the factors that constrain human resource management by school leaders.
