This, attributed to all components of education systems, without doubt, the heavy responsibility of the ongoing review of its policies, strategies and methods of operation and this, so they can quickly respond to the requirement. Which raises the issue of quality of these systems, since it in its simplest and usual meaning is that the ability to meet the needs of the beneficiaries of the service provided.
