Education Management — Information Technology and School Autonomy

  • Israelit Rubinstein


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.
