Educational policy remains a key variable in the way state governments respond to global change. This paper examines the policy, politics, and social inequality that permeate the educational system in Greece. It begins by placing Greek educational policy in its wider political, cultural, and socio-economic context. It considers the "post-modernization" process in Greece in recent years and reflects on the structure and political economy of Greek education. Then the paper reports on how social inequality is reproduced in the Greek educational system, and emphasizes the need for further research to better understand the complex and changing nature of the nation-state of Greece.
