The EU strategy of intelligent, sustainable and inclusive growth and the spending review ask for effective and transparent models of performance improvement of the public institutions. The importance of good governance is particularly evident against fundamental and inalienable individual rights like instruction and training. Recent reforms of Italian educational system impose rapid changes in the school governance system, high demand for managerial skill and operational autonomy, the capability to optimize performance, dialogue with stakeholders, and transparency of behaviour. The Italian school is called to face a profound change to improve its performance and to build an effective network with its stakeholders.
