Ecuador’s National Education Union, UNE, is facing the threat of being shut down as the Ministry of Education initiates proceedings for the union’s legal dissolution, a move that violates the country’s international commitments.
A new Education International report on edu-businesses operating in Hyderabad and Delhi, India has unveiled education inequities in the system while uniting politicians, unions, as well as parents and teachers around a common cause.
Education International's President Susan Hopgood joined the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the American Federation of Teachers, thanking the education union “for setting an important example”, and “fighting for the public school, for equity and for democratic values”.
Education International is the voice of teachers and other education employees across the globe. A federation of 396 associations and unions in 171 countries and territories, it represents some 32.5 million educators and support professionals in education institutions from early childhood to university.
