La edición de este año del Monitor de la Educación y la Formación de la Comisión muestra los avances realizados para cumplir importantes objetivos de la UE, pero también destaca que los Estados miembros deben hacer que sus sistemas educativos sean más adecuados e inclusivos, en particular en lo que se refiere a la integración de los refugiados y los migrantes recién llegados.
Europa depende de sistemas educativos eficaces para dotar a los jóvenes de las capacidades necesarias para construir su vida como ciudadanos y desarrollar sus carreras profesionales. Las escuelas, las universidades y las instituciones de formación profesional son la base del crecimiento, el empleo, la innovación y la cohesión social. En la edición de 2016 de su Monitor de la Educación y la Formación, publicada hoy, la Comisión Europea analiza el estado de la Unión Europea y los sistemas nacionales y pone de manifiesto que los Estados miembros se enfrentan a la doble tarea de garantizar una adecuada inversión financiera y ofrecer una educación de gran calidad a los jóvenes de todos los orígenes, incluidos los refugiados y los migrantes.

This Eurydice report contains more than 30 detailed structural indicators, up-to-date figures, definitions, country notes and a short analysis of recent key policy developments and reforms in five areas: early childhood education and care, achievement in basic skills, early leaving from education and training, higher education and graduate employability.
The report provides background and complementary information on a number of structural indicators examined in the Education and Training Monitor 2016, the annual publication of the European Commission which describes the evolution of Europe's education and training systems based on a wide range of evidence. It follows the progress made by the EU Members States towards achieving the targets set by the Europe 2020 and the Education and Training 2020 reform processes. [+]
In 2015/16, teachers' salaries increased in 24 countries or regions, while they remained at about the same level in 16. Over the last seven years, in real terms, minimum statutory salaries have increased or remained stable in most European countries, although they are still below 2009 levels in some of them.
Remuneration is a key element in making teaching an attractive profession. The report Teachers' and School Heads' Salaries and Allowances in Europe – 2015/16 provides a comparative overview on the minimum and maximum statutory salaries for teachers and school heads in pre-primary, primary and secondary public schools in 40 European countries or regions. It also examines the changes in teachers' basic salaries over the last year and the evolution of teachers' purchasing power since 2009. The report also looks into actual salaries, salary progression and available allowances in each country, including national data sheets with detailed information on all these issues. [+]

Recommended Annual Instruction Time in Full-time Compulsory Education in Europe 2015/16
Comisión Europea. Eurydice Report, 9 June 2016
The Council of the European Union has set the goal of reducing low achievement in reading, mathematics and science among 15-year-olds' to less than 15 % by 2020. But how are European countries going to achieve this? Effective learning depends on many factors, but undoubtedly the instruction time available to students plays a role in their learning process. How can they best organise limited time between different subjects, ensuring that all students have the opportunity to develop their learning potential in a range of different areas?
This report analyses the recommended minimum instruction time by education level and across the four core curriculum subjects (i.e. reading, writing and literature; mathematics; natural sciences and foreign languages) in full-time general compulsory education in 37 European countries. The data refer to the minimum requirements set for the compulsory curriculum by the competent authorities of the 42 education systems covered in 2015/16.
The report provides a comparative overview on instruction time differences between primary and compulsory general secondary education. It identifies the main changes which occurred from 2010/11. It also includes national diagrams and maps illustrating the data on minimum instruction time by country and by subject. [+]
This report provides an overview of the structure of education systems in Europe for 2015/16. In total, 42 education systems are represented. Information covers the 28 EU Member States as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, and Turkey.
For each country, diagrams show how the national education system is organised at five education levels: early childhood education and care, primary and secondary education programmes, post-secondary non-tertiary programmes, and the main programmes offered at tertiary level.
The first section of the report sets out the main organisational models of pre-primary and compulsory education. The second one provides a guide on how to read the diagrams, while the third section shows the national diagrams including the corresponding levels of education as defined by the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED 2011).
