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.



Governance of schooling and the school network in Lithuania

This chapter focuses on the framework of governance applied to schooling in Lithuania and on how the school network is organised. It looks at the oversight and management of the schooling system at government, municipality and school level and considers how the network of schools is configured and, importantly, how that network is reviewed and reorganised to respond to demographic changes. It considers the strengths and challenges inherent in the current system and makes policy recommendations designed to improve the governance of how resources are used effectively.
