Forthcoming policy developments

A new grand-ducal regulation on the organisation of student councils is in preparation and will replace the existing 2001 grand-ducal regulation on the organisation of student councils. The new regulation will regulate procedures and organisation of students councils (e.g. budget, voting procedures). 

Ongoing debates

The new reform on secondary education and the corresponding law (loi du 29 août 2017 portant sur l'enseignement secondaire) came in the aftermath of intense debates. The implementation of this law is also the subject of further discussions. Participation of pupils in secondary schools is a central issue of the current debate. The National Pupil Conference of Luxembourg has published a notice that calls for schools to be more open and participative. Among other things, it calls for the strengthening of parents' participation and pupils' voice, and the recognition of its participants (see: Notice of the CNEL).
