Tschoumy, Jacques-Andre, Ed.
More than 100 inspectors and directors from French and Italian speaking Switzerland participated in a 2 day conference that examined the focus and commitment of Swiss education and educators as European unification draws closer to reality. Following an introduction by the president of the Association of Inspectors and Directors of French and Italian Speaking Primary Schools in Switzerland (AIDEP) and opening remarks by the director of the Institute of Educational Research and Documentation (IRDP), the document is dividend into two parts. Part 1 features four presentations that focus on Swiss education and the European Union. Topics include how the Maastricht Treaty will affect education, the politics of education today and in the future, and Swiss education revitalization efforts. Part 2 offers eight presentations that examine the Swiss cantons and their interdependence with the Council of Europe. Among the topics featured are the views of European youth, European standards, and European dynamics and the Swiss system of education. The seminar participants provided three conclusions: (1) school is a driving force in a changing society; (2) the Swiss are committed to educating Europe; and (3) there is a strong interest in education projects that have a European character.
