Greek Primary Education in the Context of the European Life Long Learning Area
Stamelos, George; Vassilopoulos, Andreas; Bartzakli, Marianna
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
The present paper argues that the adoption of the Lisbon Strategy--in the context of the formulation of the European Lifelong Learning area, through the Open Method of Coordination--resulted in the expansion of the EU competencies into an area regulated, until very recently exclusively by the Member States--that is Compulsory Education. Accordingly, the paper aims at identifying the potential linkages between the policy priorities set at the European level and the respective legislative initiatives introduced by the Greek government in relation to Primary Education. Finally, it comments on the new roles attributed to the Greek PE in the context of the European LLL area. [For complete volume, see ED567118.]
