Rethinking Education strategy of the EU

There is an ongoing debate on the document of the European Commission Rethinking education: investing in skills for better socio-economic outcomes. Parents should have a say both on the European level and also by triggering and participating at the national debates initiated by the EC.

The starting point is: "European education and training systems continue to fall short in providing the right skills for employability, and are not working adequately  with business or employers to bring the learning experience closer to the reality of the working environment. These skills mismatches are a growing concern for European industry's competitiveness."
