Abstract: The Education sector is one which sees most changes, and in the local scenario one can easily say that the amount of changes that it has faced in the past decades haven’t been matched up with the necessary amendments in the law. In 2017 we are still faced with a law which was laid out in 1988. In 2016 the legislator launched the first three of the five documents which will make up the new Chapter 327, for the consultation process. Although maintaining many of the provisions of the Education Act introduced in 1988 and its subsequent amendments, the new law explores new concepts and introduces some major changes in the Educational field. This thesis will delve into the different articles introduced in 1988 and also the subsequent amendments introduced throughout the years, by exploring the reasoning through parliamentary debates and also direct comments from the Ministers who piloted such amendments. Finally, this thesis will also evaluate what provisions should be corrected, amended or introduced to address the day-to-day issues arising in our educational system.
