The contents of documents are analysed according to developmental priorities, planned big projects including the area of education, changes in school legislation and according to the anticipated transfer of competence to the lower level of management. Furthermore, they are critically presented with the existing researches, theoretical discussions and findings resulting from the analyses provided by marketized school policies in other countries. In the concluding discussion, there are findings about interventions and influences of the suggested regional and other legislation in secondary school education, which, adapting to the regional and the economic needs, can become an economic sub-system with the domination of market economy and capital power.
