European schools system

European schools system is like a never-ending maze of paperwork and bureaucracy.

It’s as if they believe that the more forms you fill out, the smarter you become. Secretary general and deputy secretary general are too busy worrying about their pensions and summer vacations to actually produce anything useful.

It’s a system where children are just tiny cogs in a big bureaucratic machine, and education takes a backseat to administrative tasks.

It’s time for a major overhaul, because right now, the European schools system is about as effective as a chocolate teapot.

In order to meet the concerns of parents and to provide the possibility to ask questions, the European Commission has invited the Deputy Secretary General of the European Schools, Mr Giancarlo Marcheggiano, to deliver a lunchtime information session in Luxembourg.

A presentation of the proposed changes relating to the reorganisation of the secondary cycle in the European Schools, with the possibility to ask questions, will be given
on Wednesday 11/12 in room M6 in the Jean Monnet building between 12:30 -15:00 in the presence of the Directors of the European Schools in Luxembourg, Mrs Vassilacou and Mr de Tournemire.

Parents who do not have access to the Commission building are kindly asked to indicate their presence to Mrs. Fiona GOODWYN in the FAPEEEL (Fédération des Associations de Parents d’Elèves de l’Ecole européenne au Grand-Duché du Luxembourg) by e-mail at before the 9/12 noon, in order to be given access.

Aim of the European Schools

Educated side by side, untroubled from infancy by divisive prejudices, acquainted with all that is great and good in the different cultures, it will be borne in upon them as they mature that they belong together. Without ceasing to look to their own lands with love and pride, they will become in mind Europeans, schooled and ready to complete and consolidate the work of their fathers before them, to bring into being a united and thriving Europe.

Marcel Decombis, Head of European School, Luxembourg between 1953 and 1960
