EUROPE 2020 INDICATORS: EDUCATION [16 March 2015]
Data from December 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables.
This article is part of a set of statistical articles based on the Eurostat publication Smarter, greener, more inclusive? - Indicators to support the Europe 2020 strategy. It provides recent statistics on education in the European Union (EU), a key area of the EU's Europe 2020 strategy.
The analysis builds on the headline indicators chosen to monitor the Europe 2020 strategy's education targets: 'early leavers from education and training' and 'tertiary educational attainment'.
The analysis follows the typical educational pathway, starting with early childhood education, followed by acquisition of basic skills (reading, maths and science) and foreign languages, leading to tertiary education and life-long learning in adulthood; it then switches to the 'outcome' side, looking at educational attainment in the EU labour force and the impacts of low levels of attainment; finally, the input in the form of public expenditure on education, is investigated.
Europe 2020 strategy target on education
The Europe 2020 strategy sets out a target of 'reducing school drop-out rates to less than 10 % and increasing the share of the population aged 30 to 34 having completed tertiary or equivalent education to at least 40 %' by 2020 .
