Tuesday, 26 April 2011
According to the recently published European Commission report “Progress towards the Lisbon objectives in education and training - Indicators and benchmarks, 2010/11” EU countries have improved their education systems in key areas over the past decade but they have achieved only one out of five benchmarks set for 2010.
The report, which covers all EU Member States, plus Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Turkey, Norway and Liechtenstein, contains overviews and detailed statistics identifying which countries perform above or below the EU average and which are catching up or falling behind compared to the others.
