Lifelong Learning in Europe: Equity and Efficiency in the Balance
Riddell, Sheila, Ed.; Markowitsch, Jorg, Ed.; Weedon, Elisabet, Ed.
University of Chicago Press
The ongoing economic crisis in Europe raises fundamental questions about the European Union's ability to harmonize educational policy across its member states. With evidence that European unity is clearly faltering, many educational goals, including lifelong learning, are in trouble. In this book, the contributors work toward a greater understanding of lifelong learning in an expanded Europe, with particular emphasis on post-Soviet states. Examining data from the EU Sixth Framework Project Lifelong Learning Policy and Practice in Europe, they provide important insights on how lifelong learning contributes to economic growth and social cohesion, as well as how it has evolved over the years.
