Students outraged with a new Commission portfolio

BRUSSELS – A draft proposal for a new organigram of the European Commission shockingly undermines the diversity of education, which is no longer a part of a Commissioner’s portfolio but instead referred to as “skills”.

The European Students Union (ESU) and the Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions (OBESSU) are outraged by this proposal that does not comply at all with students’ perception of education. A research project presented by ESU this year proves that students consider education to be much more than simply a training of skills. According to this study, students think that education also plays a critical role in personal development and active citizenship. They did not perceive education as a tool that should match the needs of the labour market, but as an instrument that should reflect the needs of each society as a whole.

The European Commission and the member states of the European Union are not taking the education community in Europe seriously if this proposal will be adopted. This is a terrible mistake that does not recognise the multifaceted role of education,” says Elisabeth Gehrke, Chairperson of ESU.

Education is not a side-product

Although OBESSU and ESU acknowledge fully that youth unemployment is a crucial issue, it will not solved by denying the role of education in Europe. The organisations are concerned that education will become a side-product seen through the lens of skills, when it should be considered as a vital instrument in creating a better future for Europe.

"OBESSU is very disappointed to hear of the news from the Commission. At OBESSU we firmly believe that education has a very broad range of benefits for society as well as individuals - providing the right skills for the labour market being only one of them. Education is a human right and a public good and the social dimension of education must also be recognised. We urge the European Commission to rethink the whole portfolio and replace 'Skills' with 'Education' or 'Learning,'" says a statement that the Board of OBESSU released today.

The draft proposal for a new organigram of the European Commission was leaked to Euractiv that published it today Thursday 4 September.

03:03 on 26 Oct 15 In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies. To start explaining the microservice style it's useful to compare it to the monolithic style: a monolithic application built as a single unit. Enterprise Applications are often built in three main parts: a client-side user interface (consisting of HTML pages and javascript running in a browser on the user's machine) a database (consisting of many tables inserted into a common, and usually relational, database management system), and a server-side application. The server-side application will handle HTTP requests, execute domain logic, retrieve and update data from the database, and select and populate HTML views to be sent to the browser. This server-side application is a monolith - a single logical executable[2]. Any changes to the system involve building and deploying a new version of the server-side application. Such a monolithic server is a natural way to approach building such a system. All your logic for handling a request runs in a single process, allowing you to use the basic features of your language to divide up the application into classes, functions, and namespaces. With some care, you can run and test the application on a developer's laptop, and use a deployment pipeline to ensure that changes are properly tested and deployed into production. You can horizontally scale the monolith by running many instances behind a load-balancer. Monolithic applications can be successful, but increasingly people are feeling frustrations with them - especially as more applications are being deployed to the cloud . Change cycles are tied together - a change made to a small part of the application, requires the entire monolith to be rebuilt and deployed. Over time it's often hard to keep a good modular structure, making it harder to keep changes that ought to only affect one module within that module. Scaling requires scaling of the entire application rather than parts of it that require greater resource.

The developer holds regular promotions that are advertised prominently including the icon in the status bar. Another annoyance is that the game permanently checks the Actuality: is your version is not up to date, so you can not play more - this is the dark side of the Online Game.
