Education Management — Information Technology and School Autonomy

  • Israelit Rubinstein
Part of the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology book series (IFIPAICT)


The educational system in Israel, like in some other societies is now in the midst of a decentralization process. An integral aspect of this process is to transform schools into autonomously managed units. Information technology is applied heavily to assist this development in a very similar way to processes in the economic sector.
