Understanding education policies with key data in hand

April 26, 2012
In February 2012 Eurydice published ‘Key Data on Education 2012'. It traces the main developments of European education systems over the last decade. The data are produced by three sources: Eurostat, Eurydice and PISA (OECD). EUNEC was invited by Margarida Gameiro (Head of Unit A4 – analysis and studies – DG EAC) to the presentation conference.

The key data were presented by Arlette Delhaxhe and Stanislav Ranguelov from the EACEA.
They insisted on three main conclusions:
¬ Efforts are needed to attract more people to the teaching profession
¬ The financing of education is the main challenge in times of crisis
¬ Highly educated people have better employment opportunities
Forthcoming: Eurydice announces a publication on the impact of the crisis on education policy in Europe by November 2012 and a study on the impact on teacher salaries by the end of June 2012. On 5 June, the publication on key competences will be presented.
