Equal opportunities in education Archive

In 2007, ECHO, a Dutch centre for expertise in diversity policy, presented the sixth ECHO Award. This is a national incentive award for outstanding ethnic minority students in higher education and university training. ECHO believes in the talent of young ethnic minority students and its aim is to make this talent visible. It consequently publishes an annual portrait gallery of ECHO ambassadors. Their experiences will encourage others to make positive choices.
In Belgium too, a significant effort will have to be made to democratise education. Although the government is aware of the problem and has taken the necessary measures, it remains important for all the actors involved to eliminate the inequality.
ECHO Ambassadors for 2007 will now have the opportunity to talk about their experiences, followed by a discussion between the Dutch Minister of Education, Ronald Plasterk (to be confirmed) and the Flemish Minister of Education, Frank Vandenbroucke. They will talk about their experiences and approach and what they have to offer, as well as the point they regard as an absolute top priority, namely equal opportunities for all in education.
Fields marked with a star are required.
