Raising Achievement for all Learners (RA4AL) - Quality in Inclusive Education conference

The Raising Achievement for all Learners project conference was held in Odense Denmark on 13-15 June 2012. The event was organised in collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Education and the Odense Municipal Authorities and was recognised as an official event under the Danish Presidency of the EU.

The conference was opened by Ms Christine Antorini, Minister for Children and Education in Denmark who spoke about the recent reforms in Denmark. Mr Harald Hartung, Head of the Jean Monnet Unit in the European Commission set the RA4AL work in the context of the ET 2020 strategic framework and stressed in particular the need for action to address inequity. Further inputs were provided by policy makers from Cyprus, Estonia, Finland and France.

The conference was attended by researchers and policy makers for both mainstream and inclusive education from 27 countries which provided a range of perspectives during discussions and supported the aim of the conference - to address the need for more information on quality education in inclusive settings as a way to raise the achievement of all learners. 

An exhibition and a series of seminars at the conference gave delegates the opportunity to explore initiatives and approaches that appear to be successful in improving the quality of education in inclusive settings and to identify some factors that support the raising achievement of all learners to improve life chances and provide better opportunities for full participation in society.

This conference serves as a very positive start to longer term work by the Agency on this important and challenging agenda.
