Abstract:

Since the onset of the global economic crisis at the end of 2008, EI has been closely following the impact on education sectors and EI's member organisations the world over. Two surveys conducted among EI's membership during 2009 addressed a number of issues in relation to the impact of the crisis, including: what have been the consequences for education budgets following a global trend of tightened fiscal policies? How have government measures affected teachers' working conditions and salaries? What impact have financial 'aid' instruments (IFI loans, stimulus packages, ODA) had on education funding? How have unions responded and what do they expect for the future? These have been summarized in the EI (2009) Report on the Impact of Economic Crisis on Education, Teachers and other Education staff. However, processes of reform initiated in 2009, as a response to the crisis, started to have an actual impact in 2010 only. Hence, this second follow-up survey to the EI 2009 Report was meant to supplement the data collected and to enquire on the latest, most tangible, developments of the crisis and their effects on the education sector, and on educational personnel, in particular. This survey adopted an approach based on two strands of analysis: 1) Comments and updates on information in the EI 2009 Report by those (68) organisations that replied to the second round of questionnaires (in 2009); 2) interviews to a sample of organisations from both the developing and the developed world on the latest developments of the crisis.
