Reforming Czech Tertiary Education: When the National and the International Interact

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Czech tertiary education has been reformed significantly during the last two decades. The system has gone through a period of substantive expansion, transforming it from a elite to a mass system. The changes were accompanied by the decrease of state control in favour of institutional self-governance, autonomy in decision making, and new accountability measures. The transformation of the higher education system has been strongly influenced by international developments, in particular the Bologna process and OECD activities. In response to international influences, the White Paper on Tertiary Education was published by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in 2008. The White Paper formulates the main reform ideas, including how to reach the declared goals. It is expected that the reform principles will be codified in a new higher education act. In this paper, I will analyze the on-going reform debate, with special focus on three contested issues: the three-tiered study structure and institutional diversification; academic career structure; and institutional governance.
