What Secondary Education for a Changing Europe? Trends, Challenges and Prospects. Report of the Final Conference of the project "A Secondary Education for Europe," (Strasbourg, France, December 2-5, 1996).
The final conference of the Council for Cultural Co-operation's project, "A Secondary Education for Europe," was held in Strasbourg, France, in December 1996. The conference was entitled "What Secondary Education for a Changing Europe?" and was attended by approximately 140 participants from European countries. The project sought to: (1) develop a model that would give young people the knowledge, competencies, and attitudes that they will need to meet the major challenges of European society; (2) prepare young people for higher education and for mobility, work, and daily life in a democratic, multilingual and multicultural Europe; and (3) make young people aware of their common cultural heritage and their shared responsibilities as Europeans. Although the project is a long way from describing a European model for secondary education, important markers have been delineated: quality for all, effectiveness and efficiency, democratic management, the European dimension, and citizenship. Appendices contain speeches by Gabor Halasz and by Jean Michel Leclercq, a presentation of the project activities during 1991-96, the conference program, and a list of participants. (LMI)
