Summary of the discussions at the latest meeting of administrative Board

As Raoul Precht had pointed out to me, the document from the Working Group (WG) on the organisation of studies in the European Schools' secondary cycle had been put on the agenda mainly for information. Some interesting ideas, such as abolishing ICT as a separate subject and instead introduce requirements to mainstream it into the teaching of all other subjects, were briefly discussed in the meeting. For me, the most worrying thing in the document is the recommendation to "reexamine" the definition of "language sections" (recommendation 4 in the report), which Kivinen also repeated in the meeting. This represents a potential challenge to one the founding principles of the European Schools.
