Social justice in education is the first concept that comes to mind when it comes to ensuring the sustainability of social development. At this point, national education systems are expected to prevent students’ demographic traits (e.g. native language, gender, migration background and the education/socioeconomic level of their family) from becoming an obstacle before their self-betterment and ideals. This session will facilitate a detailed discussion of the possibility of nations developing more inclusive and fair education policies and practices to minimize foreseeable impacts in the long run.

Discussion Themes

  • On distance education, what can be done to solve the problems of students’ access to education, considering socioeconomic differences?

  • What kind of measures should countries take for equal opportunities in education within the framework of UN Sustainable Development Goals?

  • What can be done to increase girls’ access to education on a global scale?

  • What steps are the OECD and the IEA taking (or expected to take) to put in place fairer measurement and evaluation methods?

  • How should policymakers engage the question of inclusive education in the post-pandemic era?

  • What is the significance of international education in reaching sustainable development goals?
