Ministries of education and other regulatory institutions in Latin American and Caribbean countries are now faced with the complex challenge of creating policies that address educational exclusion and promote fairer societies. In this context, the IIEP-UNESCO is organizing the 2020 edition of the Regional Forum on Education Policy, a four-day long event that will provide a space for dialogue and reflection with the goal of promoting strategies to advance towards achieving the Education 2030 Agenda.
The fourth edition of the forum, which will be held virtually for the first time, will be structured around the Regional Edition of the UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM 2020). The authors of the report, along with other experts, will sit on the five panels of the forum to discuss factors of exclusion that produce discriminatory practices within education systems.
Their findings will serve as inputs for seven workshops, in which ministry of education officials from all the region will develop recommendations and lines of action for building inclusive education in challenging post-pandemic times.
