During its “Development Decade” of the 1960s, the UN advocated education as a driver of economic growth. But, over the past fifty years, questions have been asked with increasing urgency about what kind of development is promulgated through literacy, skills training, and formal schooling. What is the longer term cost of an education that promises – and sometimes delivers – productivity, industrialization, modernity and consumption? Who pays this price? What are the larger costs? And with what ultimate consequence for the planet?
Please begin now to plan what type of contribution you can make to the upcoming meeting, and please read carefully the new opportunities for participation and new guidelines for submissions. We welcome contributions from all, and we will consider a few panel proposals in Spanish and in Chinese.
