Another strategic focus of the IRAPP is to create a forum of debate in all areas of economics and educational management. Special emphasis is placed on the “quantitative” aspects of educational management that involve disciplines such as economics. The aim is to generate information to make more informed public education policy decisions. This strategic line of research brings together various professional profiles from the fields of education, economics and management, civil servants and local government representatives who are responsible for education and human resource planning, as well as academic administrators at an individual school level.
