Key data on education in Europe 2005

Key data on education in Europe 2005
Eurydice report

Eurydice, the information network on education in Europe, has published the sixth edition of its Key Data on Education in Europe, a study drafted in cooperation with the Statistical Office, Eurostat.

The 2005 edition gives a vast panorama of the way educational systems work and the participation of young people at every level of education in 30 European countries (the 25 Member States, the 3 EFTA/EEA countries, Bulgaria and Romania). Some 153 indicators are divided into six thematic chapters: context, organisation, participation in teaching, resources, educational processes, diplomas and levels of qualification.

The main trends shown by the report are that:

  • more and more children benefit from pre-primary education;
  • more and more students are enrolled in higher education;
  • the number of qualified people in scientific and technological sectors is increasing little by little; - the quality of school education is increasingly assessed;
  • in the new EU Member States, the organisation and the management of the educational systems are very close to those of the EU15;
  • and the inequalities in access to IT equipment and the internet in schools are diminishing.
