Abstract: The book Insitutional models in Education, edited by Eric Hansuhek, Charles Glenn, Enrico Gori, and Daniele Vidoni, gathers the contributions of experts who have looked at the issue of school governance from very different angles (Education, Law, Economics, Statistics, Policy analysis). Some of the contributors are: John Bishop (Cornell University, USA), Trevor Bond (James Cook University, Australia), Daniele Checchi (University of Milan, Italy), Jan De Groof (College of Europe, Belgium), Luigi Filippini (Catholic University of Milan, Italy), Charles Glenn (Boston University, USA), Enrico Gori (University of Udine, Italy), Eric Hanushek (Stanford University, USA), Neville Harris (University of Manchester, UK), Robert J. Mislevy (University of Maryland, USA) and Ludger Woessman (University of Munich, Germany). The analyses have provided a picture that highlights the relationship between high educational standards and high national economic performance, the issues involved with the creation of accountability systems instrumental to educational progress, and the challenges laying ahead of legislative renewal of the systems structure towards the creation of quasi markets in education.
