| The reports of the Central Council for Education in 1998 titled gRegional Educational Administration in the Futureh has greatly changed the basic tone of school management, aiming to establish independence and autonomy of schools. Previously the basic tone of school management was reduction of discretion in each school, school management led by the government, and establishment of within-school management systems through educational centralization. New policies have changed the tone, such as to aim at enlargement of discretion in each school and realization of school management with participation.
The school management, which had been led by the government supported by board of education, is now making progress towards realization to establish autonomous school management.
