News from the member states (and others)

As mentioned above, government intervention in educational publishing and reforms in education are again on the agenda of many of our members. In June, the Lithuanian parliament had a hearing about "Do Lithuanian schools need new content?". I was asked to present the European perspective but since I had a prior engagement, I couldn't attend and sent a video instead.

If you do not want to watch this but are interested in the presentation text itself, please let me know. I have already forwarded the material to Texto Editores and Pataki and I am happy to do both send you the presentation and put it online after July 15th.
