This Tuesday, MEPs approved a report looking at teaching the role of the EU in schools, universities and through lifelong learning at all educational levels across Europe. With the inclusion of a European dimension in school programs, the EP rapporteur, Damian Draghici wants to enable children to critically reflect on European matters and fight Euroscepticism which is too often based on a lack of knoweledge. This could be achieved by implementing a common educational framework focusing on curricula, training, teaching methods, mobility, research and the use of new technologies.
In order to test the water, S&D MEP Hugues Bayet visited a class of students at the Notre-Dame de Bellevue secondary school in Dinant. This group, under the direction of their geography teacher, has spent several weeks being initiated into the mysteries of EU legislation.
