What will schools look like in the future? What big trends are most influential in shaping education and how might these unfold in coming years? What policy questions need to be tackled today to open up desirable pathways into the future? These ambitious questions are addressed in What Schools for the Future?, a publication produced by the OECD's Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI). Drawing on an extensive international body of statistical and research evidence, the book analyses the social, economic, and educational trends of the 21st century. It also presents six possible scenarios for school systems over the next 10-20 years. The analysis is completed by contributions from eight international experts, looking with different perspectives at the challenges facing schools today and tomorrow. This book is relevant to the many - policy-makers and administrators, practitioners, researchers, parents and the wider public - concerned about the long-term development of education. Table of contents includes: -- Work, society, family and learning for the future, by Martin Carnoy -- A new challenge to social cohesion? Emerging risk profiles in OECD countries, by Gosta Esping-Andersen -- 21st century transitions: Opportunities, risks and strategies for governments and schools, by Riel Miller -- The driving forces for schooling tomorrow: Insights from studies in four countries ( Canada, Germany, Japan, The Netherlands), by Hans F. van Aalst -- Attitudes and expectations in relation to schools: Swedish findings and some international comparisons, by Sten Söderberg -- A new century and the challenges it brings for young people: How might schools support youth in the future? by Kerry J.
