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 funding in Lithuania

This chapter presents an overview of how the school system in Lithuania is funded, including a detailed presentation of the central funding formula used to allocate funding for teaching costs (the student basket). This was a major element of a funding reform introduced in 2001, which saw the separation of teaching costs (central funding) and school maintenance costs (municipal funding). It considers the strengths and challenges inherent in the current system and makes policy recommendations designed to build on and strengthen the approach to school funding, including the need to regularly review and evaluate the adequacy and costs of funding.
