Ralf Dahrendorf Roundtable: Education Deform. Sharing Best Practices.

09. Sep 2017
Wrocław, Poland
Among Central European countries, Poland was the biggest education success story – following modernising reforms launched at the end of the 1990s. No other European country climbed the international education tables so consistently as Poland. In 2003, the results of Polish students were below the OECD average. In subsequent surveys in 2006 and 2009, Polish students reached the OECD-average level, while they achieved results above the OECD average in 2012. This development was bluntly stopped by the PiS government, elected in October 2016. PiS wants to create a new generation of Polish patriots, who will know all details of everlasting conflicts between Poland and its neighbours but who will not be able to contribute to the acceleration of scientific advance. Schools became a weapon of PiS’s war against the liberal democracy, the development of civil society and the European integration. Will they succeed?
