The 20th of October OIDEL participated in an event organized by the European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the Istituto d’Istruzione Superiore Marie Curie, in Bussolengo (Verona) Italy. The event was introduced by Remo Sernagiotto member of the European Parliament who recalled the importance of the new European Resolution on modernization of Education in the EU. He congratulated the European Parliament to place again the family in the center of educational policies. The event was moderated by Giovanni Facchinetti, director of the General and administrative service of the I. C. Falcone – Barsellino of Bardolino.
OIDEL explained how the autonomy of the educational centers is becoming little by little more important to tackle the educational challenges that the EU is facing. On this regard, OIDEL shows how the European Parliament has took into consideration the importance of a human rights perspective to education, as well as taking into consideration freedom of education. OIDEL points the importance of the new Resolution on modernization of Education in the EU, as it recognizes the role of the parents and the importance of public funding for non-governmental schools.
