Abstract: The present paper presents - for the first time in Greece - a critical review of the legislative framework of the selection systems of educational staff in Greece. The poor managerial educational background of staff that occupies managerial positions, the lack of assessment during the term of office, the lack of stability of the selection system are the main issues discussed with regard to the system of staff selection in the Greek educational system. The present critical review is of great significance for Greek policy makers, as it may impact and help formulate future educational policy on the selection of educational staff. It also constitutes a valuable paradigm for other countries that face similar issues with regard to the selection of staff in their educational systems. An important gap in literature is filled through this study and policies that are of great importance for the effectiveness of an educational system are brought to light in a comprehensive way.

Keywords: educational policy; educational staff; selection system; educational management; evaluation in education; assessment in education; educational legislation.
