    "Today, solidarity with women is a fight for democracy”, by Sławomir Broniarz.

    Slawomir Broniarz

    Currently, women and LGBTI people in Poland face a very difficult situation. However, it would be wrong and short-sighted to see attacks on women or LGBTI people as the problem of a single country or of one radically conservative government that seeks to establish an authoritarian regime. Poland is not...

    Larry Flanagan

    There is a football chant that is used to taunt opposing fans, most often when their team is losing, which goes, “You only sing when you’re winning…”, so in that vein let me reflect on the recent place of Scotland in the PISA 2018 results on Global Competencies!

    Felisa Tibbitts

    The pandemic is stretching the limits of school systems’ abilities to deliver education with the assistance of technology.

    “Governments, Fulfil Your Promises: Make Climate Change Education Universal Now!”, by David Edwards.

    David Edwards

    It was a historic moment when in 2015 UN member states adopted a progressive agenda for a better world, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Central to the SDGs was the important (albeit overdue) recognition that social and economic development cannot be pursued without taking into account their environmental impact. That...

    Kayce Freed Jennings

    This is true: educating girls will change the world. We know that. So why, then, are there still 130 million girls out of school and what can we do about it? What can you, as educators, do about it? What can your students do?

    Leesa Wheelahan

    What is technical and vocational education and training (TVET) and what does it do? This can be a hard question to answer because there isn’t a lot of agreement about what it does, what it should do, who should pay for it, how it should be offered, and whether it...

    Now more than ever, countries are orienting their policies toward equipping children and youth with a broad range of skills to succeed in the 21st century [1]. Given this widespread endorsement at the policy level, why don’t we see it happening in more schools? Could it be that schools lack...

    Curriculum, Textbooks and Gender Stereotypes: The case of Pakistan

    Haleema Masud

    Education holds the power to form the understanding, attitudes and the behaviour of individuals. It is used as a tool for the promotion of national identities and can enhance the privilege of certain groups in the society (Smith, 1991), including men’s power over women. Gender roles and inequalities are reproduced,...
