A evolução do ensino na Europa

DUBLIN – A Europa está a braços com grandes desafios - demasiado grandes para que qualquer país os possa enfrentar. Num contexto de crise económica, de desemprego generalizado e de aumento da concorrência nas economias em desenvolvimento, a Europa tem de adaptar-se aos avanços tecnológicos e às novas modalidades de trabalho - tudo isto enquanto o envelhecimento da população coloca uma pressão crescente sobre os exauridos orçamentos públicos. Neste contexto de fragilidade, a União Europeia deve centrar-se no ensino com vista a promover o talento e potencial das pessoas e, consequentemente, estimular a recuperação económica e social.

O ensino é a chave não só para melhores empregos e para um crescimento mais forte do PIB, mas também para o desenvolvimento cultural, político e social que é necessário para garantir aos cidadãos a boa formação e solidez suficientes para liderar à escala local, nacional e internacional. Ao dar prioridade às políticas mais adequadas, os líderes da UE poderão assegurar que o ensino dos europeus lhes permitirá tornarem-se cidadãos globais articulados e fortes agentes económicos.

A boa notícia é que os líderes europeus parecem reconhecer o valor da procura de conhecimento. Aquando da atribuição de verbas do orçamento europeu para 2014-2020, os governos da UE decidiram sabiamente aumentar o financiamento destinado ao ensino e à investigação – sendo as únicas áreas onde o fizeram. Este compromisso de salvaguardar o financiamento destinado ao ensino e à investigação deverá reflectir-se na formulação de políticas a todos os níveis.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
