Newly elected education authorities should focus on quality inclusive education dedicated to strengthening students’ skills and preparing them for a prosperous future, concluded participants at a conference on 6 December 2018 in Sarajevo. The event, titled #SviMožemoBolje, was organized by the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).
The conference gathered over 50 students and parents from all over BiH. They learned about positive initiatives and examples from their peers and shared lessons learned. They also conveyed their message about the importance of inclusive education to the newly elected education authorities in BiH.
“School should be a learning and growing community that brings out the best in all students and includes active engagement by students, parents, teachers, the school management, the local community and the responsible authorities. Considering all of this, we must know first our rights and obligations, and, then we can act with full responsibility for better education in BiH,” said Bruce G. Berton, Head of the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
