A successful peer review in Zagreb

Between 10 and 11th October took place in Zagreb the first peer review organised by WP2. On an elementary school in the northwest suburb Podsused-Vrpaće of the capital of Croatia, Zagreb, a team of 8 peers examined the implementation of the International Teacher Leadership project (ITL) among a group of teachers and their Roma students.  We were invited by the Network of Education Policy Centers (NEPC) and the Forum for Freedom in Education (FSO)  to inform the school, funders and policy makers on effectiveness of the initiative, the ITL methodology as well as the possible ways of making it a systemic and replicated practice for other communities in similar circumstances. The school specially wants to learn how to (possibly) improve and sustain the initiative.

From The Netherlands and Austria two peer review teams were selected, which contains four peers each. Due to circumstances one from the Dutch team and two from the Austrian team could not join the peer review. Besides these, the workshop leader and senior assistant of work package 2 of SIRIUS were also present.
