In the context of a highly complex social and economic landscape, getting educational reforms right is a crucial part of governance understood as the ability of governments to design, formulate and implement public poli­cies. This work focuses on the quality of gov­ernance in the education system. It starts by reviewing the concept of governance and its characteristic features. It then considers the quality of governance in education based on an integrated conceptual model, which is vali­dated through a Delphi process of consultation of experts, and an international comparative analysis. The main results of an exploratory evaluation carried out in 2017 of the quality of governance in the Spanish education sys­tem are described next. Finally, the contribu­tions of the LOMLOE legislation introduced in (2020) are analysed and evalu­ated in the light of the criteria derived from this conceptual model. The main conclusion that emerges from these empirical results is that the Spanish education system has a long journey ahead of it in terms of improving the quality of its governance.
