On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Education International, the authors have selected 25 lessons which educators and their organizations have learnt throughout history on education and democracy.

These lessons serve as a set of recommendations to every classroom teacher working at all levels in education systems and in their education unions. These lessons are an invitation to take a stand in favour of democracy and its institutions and to consider contributions that teachers, schools, universities and representative organizations can make to solidify and progress democratic life.
