Los Estados miembros han de trabajar más intensamente si pretenden alcanzar los objetivos de Europa 2020 en materia de educación con el fin de reducir las tasas de abandono escolar prematuro a menos del 10 % y de aumentar el número de jóvenes con cualificaciones de nivel de graduado hasta un 40 % como mínimo, según las cifras publicadas por Eurostat correspondientes a 2011. De estas cifras se desprende que los Estados miembros siguen progresando, si bien subsisten grandes disparidades y queda mucho para afirmar que la UE cumplirá sus objetivos de 2020. La tasa de abandono escolar prematuro está ahora en un 13,5 %, inferior al 14,1 % de 2010 y al 17,6 % de 2000. En 2011, el 34,6 % de las personas de 30-34 años de la UE eran titulados universitarios, frente al 33,5 % en el año anterior, y al 22,4 % en 2000. (RAPID, IP/12/577, 7.6.2012)

Todos los Estados miembros de la UE han integrado la «educación para la ciudadanía» en sus planes de estudios de educación primaria y secundaria, si bien con enfoques diferentes, según un informe publicado hoy por la Comisión Europea. Sin embargo, la mejora de los conocimientos y las capacidades para la enseñanza de esta asignatura sigue representando un importante desafío, y solamente dos países, el Reino Unido (en concreto Inglaterra) y Eslovaquia, ofrecen formación para futuros profesores especializados en los programas de formación inicial del profesorado. En el informe se indica la existencia de un consenso general en torno a la idea de que la educación para la ciudadanía debería tener como objetivo desarrollar el razonamiento crítico así como capacidades y actitudes analíticas para fomentar una participación activa en la escuela y la sociedad.

CoverCitizenship Education in Europe
Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, 2012
Citizenship education in Europe shows that all European countries now have introduced central regulations to promote student participation in school governance. Encouraging citizens, particularly young people, to actively engage in social and political life has recently become a growing political priority both at national and European level. Because education is viewed as a principal means to promote active citizenship, the report aims to capture how policies and measures relating to citizenship education have evolved over recent years in European countries. To this end, the report provides an overview of the state of play on five main topics: 1) Curriculum aims and organisation; 2) student and parent participation in schools; 3) school culture and student participation in society; 4) assessment and evaluation; 5) and support for teachers and school heads.
The report provides information on 31 of the Eurydice Network countries (EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Croatia and Turkey). The reference year is 2010/11. [+]

CoverKey Data on Education in Europe 2012
© Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency and Eurydice, 2012.
ISBN 978-92-9201-242-7. doi:10.2797/77414

The Eurydice Network is producing the Key Data on Education report for more than 15 years. Initially, only a general report with indicators on education was published and, at present, in addition, three thematic Key Data reports are also disseminated (Foreign Languages, Innovation and ICT and Higher Education). Moreover, starting from 2012/13, two new thematic Key Data reports on Early Childhood Education and on Teachers and School Heads will be developed. The general Key Data on Education report, published jointly with Eurostat, is a unique publication and a flagship product for the Eurydice Network as it combines statistical data and qualitative information to describe the organisation and functioning of education systems in Europe.
The present edition of Key Data on Education has redefined structure and reduced overall number of indicators. However, the statistical and contextual indicators have longer data time series presenting the developments in the European education systems in the last decade. In this way, the report constitutes a useful complementary tool to accompany the publication of the Joint report on Education and Training 2020. This comprehensive outline, covering all levels of education and including the main trends in European education, would provide a context for the main themes discussed in the Joint report. [+]

CoverScience Education in Europe: National Policies, Practices and Research
The study examines the organisation of science teaching in Europe and provides an overview of existing policies and strategies that aim at improving and fostering science teaching and learning today. It looks at support measures available to teachers and schools for boosting students' motivation and interest in science. The study also contains a literature review on science education, main findings from the international surveys PISA and TIMSS as well as results from a Eurydice pilot survey (SITEP) on the content of initial teacher education programmes. It covers 31 countries (all EU Member States, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey) and takes the reference year 2010/11. [+]

CoverMathematics Education in Europe: Common Challenges and National Policies
Competence in mathematics is integral to a wide range of disciplines, professions and areas of life. This Eurydice report reveals crucial elements of the policies and practices that shape mathematics instruction in European education systems, focusing on reforms of mathematics curricula, teaching and assessment methods, as well as teacher education. The report also explores how countries tackle low achievement and increase students’ motivation to learn mathematics. It is based on an extensive literature review on mathematics education, main findings from the international surveys PISA and TIMSS and includes the results of a Eurydice pilot survey (SITEP) on the content of initial teacher education programmes. It covers 31 countries (all EU Member States, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey) and takes the reference year 2010/11. [+]

CoverTrends in European education during the last decade
Statistics in focus. Population and social conditions 54/2011.
This Statistics in Focus presents characteristics of European education and training systems between 2000 and 2009, from when children start in school, until they leave as young adults. It emphasises major trends at each educational level in terms of enrolments, education expectancy, teacher characteristics and graduates. From 2000 to 2009 there was a significant rise in children attending pre-primary education and students could on average expect to stay 17 years in education. The number of students in compulsory education has fallen sharply in many countries, particularly in Eastern Europe. There are relatively more men in vocational training whereas women dominate in tertiary education with notable subject specific exceptions. Students spend more time in tertiary education but there have also been sharp increases in the number of tertiary education graduates. [+]

Tribunal de Cuentas. Informe Especial 10/2011
¿Son eficaces los programas Leche para los escolares y Fruta en las escuelas?
.
La Unión Europea lleva más de 30 años subvencionando el suministro de productos lácteos en las escuelas a precios reducidos y recientemente ha iniciado un segundo programa de distribución de fruta. El Tribunal ha realizado una verificación conjunta de la eficacia de estos dos programas. En el presente informe constata la eficacia muy limitada del programa “Leche para los escolares”, que sufre en particular de un importante efecto de peso muerto y de una escasa dimensión pedagógica. Basándose en ciertas buenas prácticas observadas y en los inicios prometedores de las distribuciones gratuitas de fruta, el informe refleja sin embargo que existen posibles soluciones (DOUE C 313/05, 26.10.2011)

Cover14 % of the funding of education institutions in the EU in 2008 comes from private sources
Statistics in Focus. Population and social conditions 50/2011
In 2008, public education expenditure represented approximately 5 % of GDP. That year, at the start of the economic crisis, public education expenditure grew 2.8 % in real terms, 2.4 percentage points above GDP growth. Private entities expenditure in education institutions was 0.75 % of GDP, but there were significant differences in the EU, ranging from 0.15% in Finland to 1.72 % in the United Kingdom. The importance of public financial aid to students also varied considerably among countries in 2008, from 1.2 % to 16 % of public education expenditure. [+]
