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 education in the Flemish Community of Belgium

It also presents the main characteristics of the Flemish school system itself, including its structure and governance and the organisation of schools within school boards and educational networks. In addition, the chapter describes the system’s main educational goals and mechanisms for official recognition and quality assurance of Flemish schools. It also examines evidence on the quality and equity of schooling and considers major trends and policy developments that influence the use of resources in the school sector.
