Democratization and decentralization of management are the main directions of education reforming education

On March, 19th, there was held a workshop for principals of the reference schools on the basis of Dnipro Regional Institute of In-Service Teacher Education.

Interactive exercises helped participants to develop skills in a democratic style of communication and leadership and identified the state of interaction between the school principal, teacher and student according to certain criteria. The principals of the schools got acquainted with the content and methodological aspects of the manuals of the series «Living in democracy» by Rolf Gollob, etc.

«Democratization of governance is the decentralization of the school management process and the involvement of more people in the process of making important decisions. Pupils, pedagogical and parental self-government bodies create a unified system of school self-government, the purpose of which is to implement the legitimate rights and interests of all participants in the educational process», – said the master-trainer of the project, Kateryna Romanenko.
