According to the law on fiscal federalism (l. 42/2009) and to the draft agreement between the State and the Regions, the State should define essential levels of services (LEP) and standard costs and then assign financial resources (including teaching jobs) to the Regions. The Regions should then distribute the staff among schools. According to this framework it is therefore necessary to determine a model for the correct allocation of teaching staff across Regions. In this article we propose two different models. In the normative one, the allocation is made by applying the standard established by law to the determinants of the teaching staff's composition for each Region. The mixed model (statistical and normative) takes into greater consideration territorial specificities and how they have influenced the present staff allocation.


  • School spending
  • Federalism
  • Standard needs and costs
  • School's efficiency
