This study answers the research question about the factors influence on the policy of administrative centralization in modern democratic federations and, in parallel, exhibits similar preconditions for decentralization processes. The object of research are educational reforms since 1990 in 12 democratic federations. This work not only analyzes the basic preconditions for the reforms and revises intergovernmental relations, but also classifies the educational reforms in the context of the redistribution of powers. The study highlighted the factors of administrative centralization and the main reasons why the federal center may refuse to centralize policy toward decentralization.
