Rethinking Education in brief:
There needs to be a much stronger focus on developing transversal skills and basic skills at all levels. This applies especially to entrepreneurial and IT skills.
Member States need to improve the recognition of qualifications and skills, including those gained outside of the formal education and training system.
Technology, in particular the internet, must be fully exploited. Schools, universities and vocational and training institutions must increase access to education via open educational resources.
These reforms must be supported by well-trained, motivated and entrepreneurial teachers
