Hi everyone, welcome to the discussion forum for Action Track 1! I'm looking forward to a vibrant exchange and to hearing your thoughts, ideas and stories to transform education. To kickstart the discussion, can you tell us what you think are key aspects of transforming education to ensure inclusive schools where children are safe, healthy and equal, including in settings of emergencies and protracted crises?

Merci de nous donner l'opportunité de partager ensemble nos idées pour la transformation de l'éducation.
Pour répondre à cette question, j'aimerai qu'on se projette: Qui sont les acteurs qui interviennent afin de garantir les écoles inclusives où les enfants sont en sécurité m, en bonne santé et égaux, même en situation d'urgence et de crises prolongées ?
Il faut déjà que chacun connaisse et maîtrise son rôle, l'assume et l'assure malgré les difficultés rencontrées. Acteurs gouvernementaux, les enseignants, les parents, la société civile, les PTF (et même les enfants eux-mêmes) ont un rôle à jouer afin de garantir cette transformation. Si un maillon devient faible ça perturbe la chaîne. Les enseignants sont le maillon fort de cette chaîne. Alors ils doivent être avant tout des personnes de bonne moralité, avoir une bonne formation adaptée à chaque catégorie d'enfants et surtout et surtout percevoir leur salaire régulièrement. Le gouvernement doit construire des écoles garantissant la sécurité et la santé des enfants (En mettant des comités de veille et vigilance, des infirmeries etc.), les parents doivent sensibiliser et éduquer leurs enfants sur l'égalité de chance et le respect du prochain, les OSC et les PTF doivent accompagner les différents acteurs techniquement et financièrement. Cette transformation demandent aussi beaucoup de ressources. Pour les cas d'urgence et les crises, il faut anticiper, prévenir ces situations.

Voilà quelques lignes ma contribution, merci!

Teachers' values, and the values of the school community, are at the heart of making learning safe, equitable etc. It may be difficult to transform the whole system if teachers are not ready, competent and confident to make those same changes in their own classrooms and with their learners.

I totally agree with Joanna. Teachers are the biggest environment of education. So they are required to raise students with competency and confidence to eventually surpass them.

Excellent point, Joanna. What kind of obstacles have you and others observed in efforts to support teachers to transform their classrooms? Can you share any examples of success in overcoming these obstacles?

Thematic Action Track 1: Inclusive, equitable, safe, and healthy schools
The action track 1 discussion paper notes climate 15 times, mostly in the context of access to schooling in a future of climate driven disruption. The discussion paper notes the need for inclusive, equitable, and gender-transformative education, acknowledging the role of human-driven climate change. The action track would be strengthened by describing how governments should strengthen education systems’ resilience to changing climates, including how to fund these measures.

Similarly, the paper calls for learning environments that “are physically, mentally, and socially safe and conducive for learning” (p. 3). Similarly, the paper calls for learning environments that “are physically, mentally, and socially safe and conducive for learning” (p. 3). Financing should be put in place to support green school facilities, upgrade water, sanitation, and hygiene infrastructure, and remove environmental harms from learning spaces and “put in place education environments that protect and promote learners’ health and wellbeing, promote equity, and enable learning” (p.36). In addition, in the context of a changing local and global climate, schools should be a socio-emotional safe space to learn about and unpack these anxieties. Students and youth are demanding change and education institutions increasingly must account for the spectrum of the student experience from eco-anxiety to activism.

Climate change presents major risks and opportunities for school health and nutrition programs. Climate change will have direct impacts on agricultural production and food availability, but also presents opportunities for locally grown and regionally appropriate cuisines to reduce fossil fuel consumption and provide intergenerational teaching and learning opportunities.

The summit should call for climate resilience, adaptation and mitigation action plans across schools and learning environments to account for infrastructure, emergencies, nutrition, health, and so forth.

We have attracted over four hundred million signatures to a petition calling for mandatory, fully integrated climate literacy education, civic skill building, and jobs training so that everyone can participate in the creation of an equitable green economy. Our supporters include organizations, including teachers' union, labor unions, faith groups, mayors, corporations, including Microsoft, and NGOs along with individuals across the planet. A final document that does not explicitly include these issues will not prepare our students for the impacts and opportunities presented by the climate crisis.

A thought for adult education, in the mother tongue of the prospective learners. The popularity of smart phone may be useful for digital way of learning following the syllabus and reading materials ( eDiksha) all are available online.

Will the Education Transformation Summit take into account the management of education systems, which is recognised as one of the main drivers of school effectiveness?
All international organizations involved in the implementation of the Summit on the Transformation of Education are unanimous: management is one of the main factors in the effectiveness of education systems
However, we note that the Summit in question
• does not identify educational management as one of the five courses of action to be explored; however, managers are strongly committed to each of the proposed avenues: in the organization of inclusive, equitable, safe and healthy schools, in pedagogical leadership with teachers, in the implementation of ICTs, in the control of the financial activities of regional and national institutions and services;
• does not organize a focus group on the essential contribution of management to the transformation of education;
• does not include, in its stakeholders, representatives of managers or their associations.
We are aware that the majority of the education systems in which we operate do not offer managers a distinct identity, sufficient initial or continuing professional training, a transparent and effective process for appointment and retention (Research on the management of education systems in Francophone Africa). , Éditions EduGestion, 2022, forthcoming). This is despite the adoption by the Conference of Ministers of Education of the States and Governments of La Francophonie (CONFEMEN) in 2006, in follow-up to the Assises francophones de la gestion scolaire, of a Memorandum and Framework for Action on School Management, which proposed specific strategies aimed at these same conditions of practice of the profession.
We know that managers themselves are struggling to come together to become efficient actors in the proposed changes. So that, at the national and international level, these managers are ignored by ministries and international organizations in their plans to improve education, to the great detriment of the desired improvements.
It seems impossible to transform education without transforming its management.
We hope that increasing attention will be paid to this inescapable reality.
In a spirit of collaboration

Le secteur de l'éducation en Afrique est le plus touché par les conflits, crise économique et sécuritaire, changement climatique et d'autres crises interdépendantes, quoi qu'il en soit, l'éducation est un outil essentiel et incontournable. Parce que c'est le principal outil qui nous permet de sauvegarder notre histoire, nos cultures, notre devoir de bons citoyens et notre avenir etc. Les conditions applicables à notre éducation en considération sont les plus terrifiantes qui soient au XXIe Siècle. Promouvoir une bonne gouvernance et une tarification efficace dans l'éducation peut nous aider à éviter les conséquences durables causées par les conflits et les crises. En mettant l'accent sur la reprise immédiate des résolutions et de législation.

Selon l'organisme spécialisés de PACO d'EDUCAF PACO, l'absence de réponse des pouvoirs publics en particulier les gouvernements africains et des institutions intergouvernementales africaine est un défi pour atteindre l'immunité collective d'ici 2030 ou d'ici 2063.

l'initiative de créer une assurance éducation jusqu'à l'âge de 18 ans cadre avec le principe directeur de la Thématique 1. Le projet de création d'une assurance éducation s'aligne avec l'ODD 4 et l'AGENDA 2063 et promet un impact positif sur le plan international de base sur les écoles inclusives, équitables, sûres et saines d'ici 2030, 2050 et 2063.

Conformément à ce qui précède nous recommandons de mettre l'accent sur l'innovation d'une assurance éducation comme outil de garantir de l'éducation de qualité.
