About this book

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.
This open access book examines the modern role of the European School system within the European Union, at a time when the global economy demands a new vision for contemporary education. The European schools are currently in a state of crisis: their 60-year-old tradition of bilingual and multilingual education is being strained by rapid EU expansion and the removal of English speaking teachers as a result of Brexit. Their tried and tested model of mathematics and science education has rapidly been overtaken by new developments in pedagogy and assessment research, while recruitment and retention of students and teachers has become increasingly fraught as European member states review what they are, and what they are not, prepared to fund. The authors draw on original and empirical research to assess the European Schools’ place in a new Europe where the entire post-war European Project is potentially at risk. This well-researched volume will be of interest to practitioners working in European schools as well as students and scholars of EU politics and international education.

Reviews

“This book makes a significant contribution to the much under-researched and largely unchanged system of the European Schools. It is a valuable resource for scholars, school practitioners and policymakers with an interest in curriculum design in a European context and multilingual and multicultural education.” (Nicola Savvides, Senior Lecturer in International Education, University of Bath, UK)

“An in-depth and informed analysis of the curriculum offered in the European Schools, completed by inspiring suggestions to update it in line with today’s requirements.” (Giancarlo Marcheggiano, Director General of the European Schools)
