Jomtein’s statement raises concerns about the educational impact of innovation and accelerating discoveries. Education for All (EPT) aims to work to prevent the lag of millions of children and adolescents from widening and to improve indicators of coverage of basic education at the planetary level.
The paradigm of PTSD is that if children and adolescents are left out of school they will not be able to understand what is emerging new, nor insert themselves into the world, thereby widening the exclusion gap; education continues to play an equalizing role from this perspective. However, EPT also emerges as the statement that brings together the effort to standardize and homogenize the educational policies of basic education to try to break inequalities and exclusions.
In the mid-1990s UNESCO formed a Commission to produce the International Report on Education for the 21st Century,consisting of Jacques Delores (president), Al Mufti Isaac Amiga Roberto Caroline Fay Chung Brownish Emerge William Gotham Alexandra Tannhauser Michael Manley Marseillaise Padre Query Marie-Angelique Savant Kara Singh Rodolfo Stagehand Yong Won Ruhr Zhou Bonanza.
This commission presents the text called”Education contains a Treasury”. The document raises a set of themes[i],but at this time I will focus on stressing that the so-called Delores Report confirms that “educational options are society options. As such, they require in all countries a wide public debate, based on the accurate evaluation of education systems”(p.38).
Delores and his team advance in defining what they consider to be the fundamental pillars of education for and the 21st century: Learning to know (the new), Learning to Do (what is now needed), Learning to live together (in a new corporate model) and Learning to live with others (the various, the stragglers), that is in relevance with equity.
