Event Description

The following lunchtime colloquium is co-sponsored by CMEI and EPLIP. Dr Yael Tamir, former Minister of Education of Israel, will critique the assumption that there is a correlation between international benchmarks in education, such as the PISA tests, and economic growth. Drawing on statistical analysis and her own experience as a Minister of Education, she argues that a focus on international test results is misguided and hinders meaningful conversations about the purposes of education.

Pizza and refreshments provided.
