Academic rhetoric and existing research provide important messages that prevent the seemingly "liberal-democratic" Georgian educational system from functioning effectively and efficiently. The purpose of the research is to study, identify and analyze the problems and challenges related to the education policy and administration in the general education system of Georgia. The objectives of the research are the study of the design of the state policy of general education of Georgia, and the analysis and evaluation of the policy of administration and implementation.
