The understanding of social policy is perceived with social welfare policy. The certain consensus concerning various barriers in the decision making process are:
• Ideological problems that constrain the formulation of reform agenda;
• Separation between researchers, policymakers, service providers, administrators, managers , etc.;
• Different conceptions of risk at the individual or public level;
• Interrelationship of the research process and decision making process.

A better understanding of current societal developments and enable policy makers to propose solutions to problems and design social policies that can serve the public more effectively is under the research in Georgia. The reasons for this task are: impossibility to prepare the need specialists or the lack of the specialists, in general. But one of the main reason of this problem in the frame of the educational reforms is an absence of the discipline “Decision making” in the university study programs and it is connected with the crisis of the Teaching-Learning process.

• An absence the need teaching courses, trainings and workshops in decision making.

According to these reasons the questions are arisen:
• What is the social-economical and practical order of the educational reforms in Georgia and how does it look?
