The Fairest System of All: Challenges in Education Reform

This negotiation-based game addresses inequalities and structural discrimination within an educational system. The fictitious country Loristan just underwent a peaceful change in regime. One important task for the new government is to decide how education will be organized from now on. The Minister of Education initiated a Commission to come up with a recommendation for a new educational system.

The game simulates a meeting of this Commission, with the aim of developing a set of recommendations that will serve as the government’s vision for further development of the country's educational system.

Objectives

The educational objectives of the simulation are:

  • Familiarizing participants with different educational systems, including their advantages and disadvantages;
  • Raising awareness of human rights-related problems in educational reform, such as rights of minorities or non-discriminatory educational policies;
  • Raising awareness of conflicts among rights related to education.
