By 21 August; 1-3 October: The IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad will take place in Washington DC, USA, organised by the Institute of International Education and focused on Navigating a Changing World: Building Talent with Global Experiences. Studies show that graduates with an international experience find employment faster and are more prepared than those without it. Yet less than 10% of US college students graduate with a global experience. This conference will bring together leaders and practitioners from education, government and business for action-oriented discussion on global workforce readiness. Many more US students need to be extended the opportunity to gain an international experience abroad so that they can be prepared to become leaders in tech, science, innovation, and solving some of the pressing problems in our interconnected world. Regular registration rates are available until 21 August.

11 July: The IIEP Strategic Debate Education 2030: Privatization or Public Investment in Education? takes place in Paris, France, organised by UNESCO’s International Institute for Educational Planning. Policy-makers worldwide are trying to figure how best to organise, govern and support their education systems. Some countries approach these issues with public investment in teacher professionalisation and a focus on equity of student outcomes, while others use a market-based, privatisation approach to education. The debate considers the report Global Education Reform that documents the ideologically and educationally distinctive approaches three pairs of countries have taken in structuring their education systems: Chile and Cuba; Sweden and Finland; the United States and Canada. The analysis concludes that the education sector is better served by a public investment approach that supports each and every child than by a market-based, competition approach that creates winners and losers. The speaker is Frank Adamson, Senior Policy and Research Analyst, Stanford University; the discussant is Manos Antoninis, Senior Policy Analyst of the Global Education Monitoring Report; and the moderator is Suzanne Grant Lewis, Director, IIEP-UNESCO. The debate is held in English, with simultaneous interpretation into French; it can be attended in person, or via webcast.
