SOTEU: Education left out in the cold again
The Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions (OBESSU) deeply regrets the lack of commitment of the European Union to invest in education. Yesterday morning, the President of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, delivered the State of the Union Speech at the European Parliament. Two years ago, when President Juncker gave the same speech, we raised our voices to express our concerns: education and the key role that it can play to improve the social dimension of the EU, which at the time was not considered a priority. Two years later, despite having a new College of Commissioners and despite the unprecedented health crisis that we face, which has confirmed us that we must review and increase the funds allocated to our education and training systems, the European Commission’s vision of education remains sadly the same.
