Education in Greece is centralized and controlled at all levels by the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs. The Ministry enforces control over public schools, evaluates and introduces legislation, manages the budget, coordinates national university entrance examinations, maintains an education system, selects state school teaching staff, and manages administrations. The national supervisory role of the Ministry is performed through the Regional Unit Government Education Offices, which are designated as Regional Directorates of Primary and Secondary Education. State schools and their delivery of textbooks are financed by the government. Public schools in Greece are free of charge and students on a state-approved list are provided free of charge with textbooks. Approximately 25% of postgraduate programmes are available free, while about 30% of students are eligible for free education based on individual criteria.
