The 1st Pan-Hellenic Convention of Private Schools, to be held February 14 & 15, 2014, at the Hellenic American Union, shall focus on the following issues:

  • Drawing attention to the autonomous school unit as the basis for modernizing the educational system as a whole and fostering social and economic development in today’s Greece;
  • Decentralizing the schooling system and liberating public and private schools from the stifling grip of state centralization and the red-tape stranglehold of bureaucracy;
  • Eradicating distortions in the private schools operational framework;
  • Curriculum and evaluation in the autonomous school unit;
  • Presentation of a study by IOBE (Foundation for Economic & Industrial Research) venturing a comparative analysis of cost per student between public and private schools, aiming to draw inferences as to the effectiveness of public resources allocated in the operation of today’s public schools;
  • The educational voucher: a tool proposed in order to ensure the effective management of resources allocated to primary and secondary education as well as to safeguard the parent’s right to choose a school for his or her child in accordance with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
