Education can transform society, and investment in education is a key
strategy for economic and social development. Greece lags in a number of
comparative indicators when it comes to its education system. In particular,
the Greek education system is unfit for the challenges of a modern,
globalized economy in the era of information. Despite the extensive state
centralization and control, the Greek education system scores low also in
terms of fairness. Extensive influence of teacher associations, a
corporatistic structure, excessive state regulation and bureaucracy,
procrastination in implementing an integrated and effective evaluation
system, have all contributed to low education performance. What needs to
be done.
