Overcoming School Failures in the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic participates in the OECD project “Overcoming School Failures: Policies that Work”.
The main objective of the research team is to describe the Czech education system from the point of view of equality, get an external expert view of the most compelling problems and suggest some possible solutions.
Within the Czech Republic, the recommendations of OECD experts will be communicated to policy-makers, founders of schools and school facilities, school directors and teachers in seminars across the country. In the final stage of the project, an in-depth research into the attitudes of both professionals and the general public towards proposed provisions will be carried out. Based on the findings from these discussions and the research, resulting recommendations for further educative policies will be formulated.
The activities of the research group belong to one of five activities of the Competence III project, co-funded from the European Social Fund and the Czech state budget. The project focuses on the implementation of international research and the subsequent use of its results in educational policies and pedagogical practice in schools of the Czech Republic. The Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth is a partner to the Czech School Inspectorate in the Competence III project.
