The purpose of this indicative comparative analysis is an initial identification of key issues for the education sector that arise from its implementation of government decentralization policies. The system of education management is being gradually decentralised and de concentrated on the basis of the subsidiarity principle, as decentralisation is seen as one of the key strategies for reforming and reshaping educational institutions. The present paper tackles the questions about how the interaction of education decentralisation, what changes occur in the process of school management with the increase of school autonomy and what are the conditions for the process of effective school autonomisation. Despite decentralization of education functions through delegation and deconcentration of functions, there are still concerns of ineffectiveness in service delivery especially at the local level. The importance and the impact of raising education quality gives added weight to the question, "Can education decentralization raise quality " Education decentralization policies are prevalent around the world. The objectives of such policies especially those increasing school autonomy and local governance may include improving service delivery, but more commonly involve shifting political power or funding responsibilities. Whatever motivation for education decentralization, such policies may lead to improvements in the quality of education. This paper examines the potential of education decentralization to improve management and performance, as reflected in educational outcomes and changes in the determinants of those outcomes in three parts The conceptual arguments for such a relationship "¢ The empirical evidence of the impacts of education decentralization, Better design and implementation of decentralization policy to leverage its impact on quality management.
