In this paper, the author addresses the question of what kind of education services will be necessary in the year 2020, with a particular focus on childcare, including aspects of child and family welfare provision that relate to education. The analysis underlying this summary is reported fully in Moss et al. (1999), Moss and Petrie (2002), Cohen et al. (2004), and Petrie et al. (2005), all of which draw on comparative research conducted at the Thomas Coram Research Unit within the Institute of Education, University of London. This summary of key issues describes some general social trends, before turning to developments in education itself, particularly regarding the school, the teacher and their relation to welfare services and to other professionals. Lastly, the author indicates how education might respond to these trends, and proposes that a wider definition of "pedagogy," closer to continental European than English usage, and the development of "pedagogues," may be productive for 2020.
