26 SES 02 B, Comparing Educational Governance
Contemporary restructuring of (Nordic) educational governance systems brings new relations between state, local authorities and schools and thus between politicians, managers and educational professionals. With inspiration from transnational agencies – primarily the OECD – new chains of governance are being created. Decentralising of elements of governance are being mixed with recentralisation of other parts, some couplings are being loosened on economies, human resource management and operations while, at the same time coupling on educational content aims and accountabilities are being tightened. This tendency has also made many municipalities to restructure the municipal political and administrative system into a more steep hierarchy. Restructurings also influence the work of school boards and their relations to administrators and educational practitioners. School boards are increasingly responsible for greater part of the life of childhood and adolescence and therefore also need to be taking care of many institutions. New power-balances are created between diverse forms of influences: structural, discursive and social technologies are used in new combinations and with priority to different groups of stakeholder: It seems that management and consumers are being prioritized, while politicians and educational professionals loose influence in new neo-liberally inspired forms of New Public Management.
