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 school resource use in Uruguay

This chapter is about the governance of schooling, including the distribution of responsibilities, the supply of school services and the organisation of the school network. It places particular emphasis on areas of priority for Uruguay such as the structure of education governance, strategic planning and equity within the school system. It also reviews areas in which demand for education services is likely not to be met and identifies a number of sources of inefficiency in school resource use. The chapter further highlights the importance of implementation aspects of education policy and the need to increase trust in education through effective change in educational policy.
