Council reacts on the “Rethinking Education” Communication
During the last Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council, Member States reacted to the new Commission’s Communication on “Rethinking Education” while adopting Council Conclusions on investing in education and training. In line with the recommendations made in the 2013 Annual Growth Survey, Ministers acknowledged the central role of education, training and lifelong learning in the EU’s growth and employment strategy (especially to tackle youth unemployment). The Council notably invited Member States to strengthen links and ensure better coherence between the new Communication, the Education and Training 2020 Strategic Framework (ET2020) priorities, the Europe 2020 Strategy, the Annual Growth Survey and European Semester’s Country-Specific Recommendations.
