Abstract

The OECD has played an active role in the construction and dissemination of school autonomy with accountability (SAWA) as a global education policy model. As we show in this paper, it has done so by activating three governance mechanisms -namely, data gathering, education policy evaluation, and the generation of policy ideas. The OECD has played proactively contributed to the theorization of SAWA as a policy solution, matching it to a wide range of problems, and framing it loosely enough to accommodate different political preferences. To a great extent, the potential for the OECD to advance educational reforms lies, on the one hand, in its capacity to articulate causal beliefs and principled beliefs in the generation of policy ideas and, on the other, in its capacity to open political opportunity windows through which policy recommendations, such as SAWA, are introduced in national education debates.
