WRITTEN QUESTION P-5934/09
by Daniel Caspary (PPE)
to the Commission

 Subject: European School system
 Answer in writing 

Since their establishment in 1953, the European Schools have been based on an international governmental agreement. Their highest body is the Board of Governors, on which all the Member States are represented by governmental delegations. Most countries’ delegations come under their ministry of education. The Commission is also a member and a financial contributor.

At the moment the European School system falls within the remit of the Commissioner responsible for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities. A shift to the portfolio of the Commissioner responsible for Education, Training, Culture and Youth would totally change its scope and afford new opportunities.

We will soon have a new Commission and the portfolios will be (re)distributed. Does the Commission think it might be possible to shift the European School system to the portfolio of the new Commissioner for Education, Training, Culture and Youth?
