Focus on School Students’ Mobility
Having a possibility to spend some period of your secondary education abroad sounds like a great opportunity! Some school students decide to take up an exchange programme, for some it means the whole family moving abroad. Still, it is accessible for a very small group of students, as information tools and means are missing.
Students disappointed by SOTEU: Accessible education is key to the future of Europe
The European Students’ Union (ESU) and the Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions (OBESSU) welcome this specific focus on the fight against the climate change, especially in light of the recent environmental disasters in the world; and the specific actions related with the migration issue, such as the creation of legal pathways for legal migration. Nevertheless, it comes as a surprise to ESU and OBESSU, that president Juncker did not mention once “education” in his one hour speech. The EU is standing at a crossroads, ready to improve the social dimension of the Union as shown in the efforts of putting forward the European Pillar of Social Rights, and education should have a primary role in this.
