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 leaders in the Slovak Republic

This chapter is about policies to improve the effectiveness of school leadership. It analyses the profile of school leaders as well as how responsibilities for school organisation and operation are distributed in Slovak schools. Furthermore, it discusses school leader preparation, recruitment and career development. The chapter places particular emphasis on areas of priority for the Slovak Republic such as the lack of attractiveness of the school leader profession, the low salary levels, the limited capacity for school leader appraisal and the need to improve the approach to professional development. The chapter also reviews approaches to the selection of school leaders, school leaders’ use of time, administrative and management support structures and links to school development.
