The author of this seminar looks at why quality labels and structural indicators are important for social inclusion in education and how they can promote system change for social inclusion. Structural indicators offer a framework for strategic direction, while also offering flexibility at local or national contextual level. Quality labels are used to encourage and reward desirable policies, practices and outcomes. The relevance of the two is explored in the context of EU2020 headline targets for education.
