Abstract: In the last 26 years, Romania has been strongly affected by the changes that occurred in the political area, and even more in the social, economic, cultural, and educational conditions. The education system lies at the basis of the personal and professional training and development of all members of a community. Making the human resources responsible and involved in the organisation and management of educational activities is a premise of enhanced performance compared to the one recorded until now. The purpose of this article is to point out the lack of coherence and continuity of the educational policies in the Romanian education systemand the absence of a strategic approach to education in Romania. We wish to stress the importance of the key factor– the school manager–in enhancing the quality of system processes. The used methodology is based in a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the documents that exist on the official pages of the various control bodies in Romania: MECS (the Ministry of Education and Scientific Research), ISE(the Institute for Educational Sciences), CNEE(the National Centre for Examination and Evaluation), and ARACIP (the Romanian Quality Assurance Agency in Undergraduate Education).The analysed period refers to the years between 2000 and 2015. We have focused on planning documents that prove the political decisionmakers' concern with the well-functioning and development of the Romanian undergraduate educational system. We have also used data informally obtained from the current practice of undergraduate teachers. It is necessary for schools' management to become strategic and to allow increasing the quality of educational services and the performance of the educational system.
