Education

What we do

Educational systems aspire to maximum development of potential in all pupils. One obstacle to achievement of this goal in the Czech Republic is the existence of severe educational inequalities. At the SYRI Institute, we analyse how educational inequalities and their negative effects can be reduced, both in common and crisis situations (such as the Covid-19 pandemic, with the forced transition of schools to distance learning). We study effective support mechanisms in relation to different student groups and evaluate the efficacy of possible interventions.
