Decentralization and Educational Reform: What Accounts for a Decoupling Between Policy Purpose and Practice? Evidence from Buenos Aires, Argentina
Author: M. FERNANDA ASTIZ, PH.D.
Published in PAM, Vol. 9 No. 2
This study provides empirical evidence of the implementation outcomes of
decentralization and education reform policies conducted in Argentina during the 1990s.
The study examines how the reform was adopted at the provincial level, to what extent
policy implementation matches national official mandates, and what role organizational
factors play in the processes of policy implementation and outcomes. Results shed light
on the political roots of organizational adaptation that motives a decoupling between
policy directives, implementation, and outcomes.
