Eurostat publication: a comprehensive picture on Europe 2020 targets in education
On 29 October Eurostat published “Smarter, greener, more inclusive? – Indicators to support the Europe 2020 strategy” as a first series of annual publications linked to relevant Commission policy frameworks. This edition is specifically focused on Europe 2020 benchmarks, including the two headline targets on early-school leaving and tertiary attainment. Beyond presenting an extensive and very complete state of the art of the progress made towards these two objectives, the report also links additional benchmarks (public expenditure in education, student mobility…) to them in order to better understand what their triggers are and how to deliver them better.
