Transforming our World: one PISA result at a time

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

I see that Learning for Sustainability Scotland's AGM will have an Sustainable Development Goal theme.  The focus is:

Transforming our World: Responding to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals through Education

It's on Thursday 19 January 2017 [1300 to 1630] at Moray House School of Education.  LfSS say:

The theme looks at how you can contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Scotland and beyond through your work.  Scotland has signed up to take action on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across all of its activities.  SDG 4 is specifically about education through all aspects of life, and internationally Learning for Sustainability is considered at the heart of each of the 17 Goals.

I'm almost tempted to go to see if anyone mentions Scotland's terrible PISA results (which are heading backwards to levels now enjoyed in Wales).  Surely, if learning for sustainability is as good as its cracked up to be, then it should be helping to improve the standard of education generally.  Is it?
