CRELL Expert meeting on Special Education Needs – Statistics and Indicators
The Centre for Research on Lifelong Learning (CRELL), of the JRC's Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen (IPSC), is organising the final expert meeting on the OECD/CRELL Study on "Indicators on the Educational Provision for Students with Disabilities, learning Difficulties and Disadvantages (SENDDD)". This meeting will take place on 27-29 April 2009 in Zagreb, Croatia, at the invitation of the National Centre for External Evaluation of Education and the Education and Teacher Training Agency (ETTA). School visits are scheduled on April 29th, 2009.
The joint study, which involves CRELL, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Commission's Directorate General for Education and Culture, aims to increase the quality and quantity of the data in this field and to expand the current work on statistics and indicators by including the EU member and accession economies which are not covered by the OECD study (i.e. Malta, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Croatia and Macedonia as well as Bosnia, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro and Moldova).
