Policy brief: Enhancing EU impact on education

Key Asks and Priorities

The European Union is a large player in education and the EC and member states can play an important role in meeting the current challenges of inequality in access to quality education and life-long learning, poor quality of education and insufficient financing of education. The coming months will decide whether the EU takes the lead to ensure a strong, independent and ambitious education goal in the post-2015 era, or whether the education crisis will deepen and prevail and deepen. The choices and priorities made in the process of selection of a limited set of goals, could determine whether quality education and training becomes a reality for all, or whether a majority of citizens will continue to pay too high a price for poor quality services.
