When Europe forgot its homework: education in crisis

Despite the wide consensus on the fact that quality education is a key element to exit the economic and social crisis, to reduce social inequalities, to increase social well-being and democratic participation in society, education systems in many European countries are deteriorating.This documentary produced by ETUCE with support from the European Commission looked in-depth into the reality of five countries: Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Ireland, which have experienced very big cut backs in education. The Project has been led by ETUCE and its affiliates OLME in Greece, TUI in Ireland, FLC-CGIL in Italy, FNE in Portugal and FECCOO in Spain as project partners.The film-documentary is a wake-up call for the politicians in the EU countries and a new way forward for quality education.
