The paradox of organisation (school) networks
9:30 am to 12:30 pm, 06 September 2018
This seminar reflected on the increasing prevalence and unique value proposition of networks, discuss the tension between the increased benefits for end user and the decreased sovereignty for network members (e.g. schools), and talk about the role of evaluation and accountability in resolving this paradox.

Across the public services, networks are introduced as a new organisational form to improve service provision. The purpose of these new organisational forms is to ensure and guarantee educational quality and equity in a territory. Examples are the Local Public Education Services (SLE) in Chile which are set up to organise networks of pedagogical and management support of schools.
