The GEM Report, NEPCs, EASNIE and the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030 will convene an interactive webinar on the findings and recommendations from the 2021 Central and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia Report on inclusion and education.
The Report provides comparative analysis on inclusion and education for all learners regardless of background or ability across 30 education systems. Teachers from across the region are key agents for change when it comes to inclusion in education. In total, 17 education systems across the region have legislation or policies that support the development of learning communities to widen teachers’ professional development opportunities and share experiences and effective practices to strengthen equity and inclusion.
Objectives of the event
The event will spotlight the activities of teachers as change makers across the region working to ensure that every child has the right to go to school and learn regardless of who they are and where they live.
The format will include a presentation of the new 2021 regional report as well as smaller group discussions, with a particular focus on the role of teachers as change makers within the classroom, school community and the teaching profession.
