May 4, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Unesco has released 2 new documents – not for the classroom teacher, but policy makers.

Education about the Holocaust and preventing genocide: A policy guide [pdf]. From the executive summary, p 7.   “The Holocaust was a watershed event in relatively recent history whose legacies still shape our world and whose lessons are relevant to the challenges we face today. To this end, in line with initiatives supported by the United Nations and UNESCO, this guide aims to help key actors in the world’s education systems implement effective education about the Holocaust and genocide as well as mass atrocities by discussing approaches for integrating this education into various environments”

MONITORING EDUCATION PARTICIPATION Framework for Monitoring Children and Adolescents who are Out of School or at Risk of Dropping Out [pdf].This proposes a means of even collection data about out of school children.  The image below is from page 14 of the report.
