Course Content (Syllabus)
The aim of this particular course is for future teachers to understand the operation frame of the contemporary Greek educational system as well as the policies according to which it was structured. In an introductory level, the advances noticed in the European educational systems after the 2nd World War and also the variational education policy exerted to the post- civil war Greek state are presented. Next, the terms and the presuppositions of the ‘post-civil war period’ that constitute the new frame are systematically examined. Within this frame, the educational policies exerted by the governments of ‘New Democracy’ (1976-77) and ‘PASOK’ (1982-85) are posed. Since 1990 and afterwards, the Greek educational policy is examined through the new historic frame created by the globalisation and the predominance of the new-liberal ideology. In that way, some aspects of the educational policy of ‘New Democracy’ (1990-93) and especially the ‘Arsenis’ reformation (1997-98) are associated with anything that prevails upon the international educational standards. Finally, the issues and the problems of both the Greek educational system and the current educational policy are examined.
