ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article was to identify some accomplishments under the current local educational autonomy system and to explore extended tasks to be completed for its future development. Local educational autonomy system was implemented under the following principles: decentralization and residential control; separation from general administration; and professional management. Analyses of the local education autonomy transition showed that there have been numerous changes and developments made in the local education autonomy(e.g., direct election of the superintendent and members of the education board, relaxation of the qualifications for a superintendent, and formation of Local Council of Educational Administration between educational local office and general local office). These changes have ramped up both local educational autonomy and efficiency of local educational administration. The present article also addressed several tasks to be resolved towards a sustainable development of the educational autonomy system.
