Abstract

From August 2009 and until now, the Republic of Moldova has been governed, with certain exceptions, by „Pro-European” coalitions. This period was marked by a governmental instability, expressed by the frequent change of governments. Each government team came up with its own visions and governance programs. The purpose of the study is to investigate the provisions of these government programs on the development of the education system, in general, and the higher education system, in particular. 

The provisions of the government programs related to the various functional aspects of the education system in the Republic of Moldova were analyzed. In general, the examined government programs contain chapters or sections devoted to education, where are described certain perspectives on the development of the system. In the case of „long-lived” governments, the efforts made can also be quantified, materialized in decisions and in mechanisms for implementing these decisions. The governing programs of transitional governments or conjunctures’ coalitions that have ruled episodically, as a rule, remain only as declarations of intent.
