For the 15th consecutive year, the „Key Figures of National Education“ provides essential statistical indicators used as a basis for education policy-making, planning and follow-up of of relevant national initiatives.
Structured in eight chapters and annexes, the 2017 edition offers an overview of the education system in Luxembourg. As in the previous editions, the educational system in general is described at the beginning. This is then followed by the data for the school year 2015-2016, related to themes within the public schools and those private schools using the official national curriculum. The figures, texts, tables or charts provide trend data related to student enrollment by nationality and language spoken as well as the number of teachers. Other information include student attainment rates, number of schools and the costs and funding of the school system. A chapter provides an overview of the total pupils enrolled in Luxembourg, including those who attend a private or international school, whether or not teaching in those schools is based on the official national curriculum.
Once again, this edition provides data to monitor the efforts to implement the national education priorities and to support decision-making. I hope that this publication remains a reference for statistics on education and as an objective basis underpinning debates on Luxembourg‘s system of education.
