If the higher education budget is allocated by different ministries or agencies (at national or regional level), is there a mechanism available to oversee coordination among all the different levels of responsibility?

If financing of some aspects of the educational system depends on revenues collected by local authorities, is there an effective system to ensure that local authorities that cannot afford it are able to provide basic education services?

If the educational system is decentralised, is the distribution of funds for education from national to local level commensurate with the responsibilities devolved to the local level?

For instance, if the national government devolves the responsibility for hiring and paying teachers to the local level but does not provide to the local level the funds that until then were allocated for that purpose, the poorer local jurisdictions may not be able to hire all the necessary teachers
