First national school report (2003)

This content is also available in: Italian

The 1st National Report on Schools focuses on a number of innovative research areas: the survey on citizens’ expectations and satisfaction with the Italian school system (interviews were also conducted with parents), the first-ever survey of opinions on the Moratti Reform and the sample survey on students, the fundamental theme of which is the study of history between past and present. Finally, the “Focus on totalitarianism in the 20th century: analysis of the content of the history textbooks most widely adopted in secondary and high schools”, is a particularly important topic that has recently given rise to an important debate. The work is structured in five sections: The relationship with the future; Human, material and environmental resources; The school of autonomy between centralism and decentralisation; Citizens’ expectations and satisfaction; The relationship with the past: culture, values, history.
