This collective monograph presents the views of researchers and experts in the field of education and law on the issues of multilevel governance of education. Researchers and practitioners reflect on which principles the system of education should be built, which public institutions influence it, and what consequences the transfer of authority between different levels of government brings.

The monograph is supplemented by analytical annexes, which represent how different powers are redistributed in the sphere of education in Russia.
