Teachers for the Future: Teacher Development for Inclusive Education in the Western Balkans
Pantic, Natasa; Closs, Alison; Ivosevic, Vanja
International Journal on School Disaffection, v8 n2 p44-52 2011
Teachers for the Future is a regional report that draws together and analyses research findings from a study commissioned by the European Training Foundation (ETF) in seven countries in the Western Balkans region, namely, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia. The overall objectives of this study were as follows: (1) To identify and map issues, challenges and opportunities in teacher preparation for inclusive education in the Western Balkans and to analyse these against relevant European and international trends; (2) To provide evidence for improving policies and practices in pre-service and in-service teacher development for inclusive education in the Western Balkans. The study and its reports (a country report for each of the seven countries and this regional report) are part of the ETF's Social Inclusion through Education and Training in the Western Balkans programme. Its rationale is that education and training must be equitable for all people in the region and should take into account their socioeconomic and political contexts. This regional report describes changes in the political and economic contexts that are also having an impact on education.
