Abstract

Acting together for the civil society and the quality education Acting under checked umbrellas

In Hungary (Europe) 59 organizations together with the Hungarian School Librarian's Association have joined the Civil Platform for Public Education (CPPE) which is the expert platform of the “I would teach” movement, in 2016. The organizations of teachers, parents and students supported the movement, which found the recent changes and forced centralization harmful to the society. The school libraries and the democratic and student centered schools are vital parts of the quality education. It is self-evident to support these values with information services, and critically thinking methods for raising responsible citizens. The collaboration of the civil organizations stands up for a modern, effective and equally accessible education system. For this purpose it creates background information which helps to put education in its proper place in the dialogue between wide ranges of groups in society. By joining and participating actively in the civil movement the SLA can strengthen its cooperation with other teacher professionals, parents and students. As a result of the cooperation the aspects of school libraries are presented in the professional documents. The participation has raised the prestige of school librarianship. This way through the work of the HSLA and its members we can think globally and act together with other professionals for our common mission; the quality education. Our participation underlines our support for civil movements and the sustainable development together with being supported by civil cooperation and strengthened in our mission to be professionals and responsible citizens at the same time.
