Proposals for Education in the Twenty-first Century

Published in September 2001

In view of the increasing privatization and uniformity of education services, the goal is to strengthen links between education and social communities, in order to lay the foundations of another form of globalization, one that works in solidarity and greater democracy.


This text of proposals stems from work that is both socioprofessional (teachers) and thematic, with concern given to including all the actors of the education community. Due to the historic importance of education in the development of political communities, this means everyone. Given the current context of economic globalization, formulating proposals for education worldwide is important in view of the increasing privatization and uniformity of education services. The goal is to strengthen links between education and social communities, in order to lay the foundations of another form of globalization, one that is more social and democratic.

This results in a series of proposals that focus on the inclusion of new dimensions in education systems (civic education, environmental education), the need to continuously call into question and debate on educational content, the participation of communities in defining the objectives and methods of education, the fight against exclusion, etc.
