European Toolkit for Schools
EIESP is providing support to the European Commission’s European Toolkit for Schools. TheToolkit, which is available through the School Education Gateway, offers concrete ideas for improving collaboration within, between and beyond schools with a view to enabling all children and young people to succeed in school.The Toolkit has recently developed short films with examples of whole-school approaches to preventing early school leaving. They are subtitled in all European languages.
The project is funded by the European Commission.
Jean Gordon (1950-2018)
The EIESP fondly remembers Jean Gordon, Director of the EIESP from 2003 to 2013, and Joint Editor of European Journal of Education (EJE) and member of the EJE board (2004-2015). Jean passed away on 30 October 2018. On the anniversary of her passing, she is remembered by her colleagues at the EIESP and the European Journal of Education for her determined optimism, insightfulness, openness to new ideas, ability to negotiate values and forge compromises, and above all, her social and moral commitment and integrity. In addition to numerous editorials, Jean published a number of articles EJE which we present here, free to access through to October 2020.
