Education in crisis - Education in crisis - this way out

Education in crisis - Education in crisis - this way out | Youth engagement | Scoop.it

Education throughout the world is in crisis. Across the globe, the continuing economic crisis is devastating education budgets. Cuts in education are leading to staffing shortages, salary and pension cuts, reduced support services, and rising tuition fees. Privatisation of education services and the deprofessionalisation of teaching are increasingly promoted as expedient measures. Such policies undermine the right of every child to access a quality public education.

Promoting Youth Employment (2012) - African Economic Outlook

Promoting Youth Employment (2012) - African Economic Outlook | Youth engagement | Scoop.it

As successive editions of the African Economic Outlook have shown,  Africa’s rate of growth has outperformed the global rate over the last decade.  Yet high growth is not sufficient to guarantee productive employment for all.  Large sections of the population, and particularly the young, can be left  behind and become frustrated. In the absence of a political process allowing  them to express their views and produce policy changes, instability can result,  as it did last year in a number of North African countries. This is an  opportune time to reset the policy agenda of African governments towards an  inclusive, employment-creating and sustainable growth strategy, aimed  particularly at addressing the special needs of the young.
