Education & Equal Opportunities
The world is changing, and it is not changing back. The best way to cope, for young people and everyone else (including policymakers), is a constantly evolving, high-quality education system that responds to the needs of the times and of the respective economies. Education is also key for promoting equal opportunities and fostering social mobility and social cohesion. This section of EconPol explores the relationship between education and socio-economic outcomes, proposing solutions to the barriers that hinder equitable access to education, such as socioeconomic status, gender, ethnicity, and geographical location, with the goal of helping to devise policies and initiatives aimed at reducing disparities and promoting inclusive systems.
