Cambodian education is facing the requirements in the new context of industrial revolution 4.0 and 5.0 that require substantial and comprehensive renovation. Teaching and learning requires a strong transformation to embrace this new technological advancement. The New Generation Schools (NGS) reform launched in 2015 is used as a new school governance framework to promote the quality and the relevance of education to equip Cambodian youth with skills in industrial revolution era. As stated in Policy Guidelines for New Generation Schools for Basic Education in Cambodia, the establishment of NGS is based on the vision that ‘New Generation Schools will lead to the emergence of a new administrative framework that ensures the necessary conditions needed for successful educational investment’. The Goal of NGS is to create a new development track within the public education system that will lead to the creation of autonomous public schools, which receive high investment linked to new standards of accountability and governance as well as professional standards for 21st Century learning. This paper analyses the innovative governance features of the NGS focusing on the school autonomy for quality of learning and teaching practices. First, we will discuss the school autonomy in global context. Secondly, we discuss the design of NGS under the school autonomy model. Then, we construct the features of school autonomy in NGS. Finally, we identify lessons learned from NGS which can be leveraged in non-NGS schools in term of innovative good governance.
