Education is a perennially vexing issue in American life. What, exactly, is the best system for teaching? Proponents of charter schools believe that competition is the key; public schools will improve if they have to compete for students. Charters themselves are public schools, but ones run by any group accepting the challenge of improving student performance in return for fewer regulations and tight budget restrictions. In short, charter schools have defined focus and clear accountability. Those opposing the charter movement though, claim that charter schools are divisive and distract attention from public school needs. Some politicians have shown approval of charter schools, as evidenced by President George W Bush's bill for funding charter programs. This book aims to clear up some of the questions around charter schools and can help answer the questions surrounding the future of the American education system.

In times of scarce resources, the stakeholders in education demand that schools make their performance transparent to the outside world. National and regional school systems have been responding to this demand by developing and implementing different forms of educational accountability. The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education has developed a framework for accountability in response to the following five issues: who is accountable, to whom, for what, at what level, and with what consequences. It identifies a market competition approach, a decentralized decision-making approach, and a professional and management approach. The study describes some of the accountability tools used in the member countries of the International network of Innovative School Systems (Canada, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, and Switzerland) and considers the implications for future policy and practice.

Decentralization - an essential pillar of institutional reform - is of critical importance in developing countries, particularly in regard to democratization, effective development, and good governance. Uganda, since 1986 and the start of decentralization measures under Yoweri Museveni and the National Resistance Movement, has represented one of the most serious commitments in Sub-Saharan Africa. With the benefit of extensive fieldwork, Fumihiko Saito demonstrates how conflict resolution, information dissemination, and encouragement of the many and varied stakeholders to form partnerships are critical to successfully bringing services "closer to the people. Decentralization and Development Partnerships: Lessons from Uganda goes beyond theory to compare academic assumptions to the reality of decentralization implementation in modern Uganda. Although the process is by no means free of difficulties, Saito concludes that a "win-win" outcome is a real possibility.
