‘A draft report on the European School System prepared by the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education underlines that there are many areas in which the European School System truly excels.

The report is based on an in-depth study commissioned by the parliamentary committee and broad consultations of stakeholders. However, while reaffirming the achievements and proven value of the educational model, the report points out that serious governance, management and financing difficulties persist, hampering the system’s potential with negative consequences for the entire school community. These difficulties touch upon legal issues, resources, infrastructures, staff recruitment and elements of educational and pedagogical quality, thereby underscoring a profound need for reform’.

The report is expected to be voted at the parliamentary committee on May 25, 2023.
