  • Hello dear friends,
    in the manifesto is stated that "the level of dissatisfaction with the status quo is without doubt high" (p.9) but the solution is given some lines before. It lies "in the readiness to engage in a process of collaborative reflection on the future of education and learning and on the changes needed" (p.8).
    It is so true and crucial. Teachers are the key factor for society, we have the possibility and duty to educate our future generations. Not an easy work but it is a responsible position with the chance to create society.
    This manifesto should be planning criteria for developing educational systems in European countries.
    So lets get ready to engage!

  • Hello dear friends! Very close to national elections day here in Greece. Let's all hope that they will bring better days for everyone here. One of the hot potatoes in education right now in my country is school and teachers evaluation. Teachers seem unwilling to submit school evaluation reports and all government plans for assessing schools performance seem to have been left behind....What's the situation in other countries?
