Commissioner Tibor Navracsics presented the 2019 Education and Training
Monitor at the secondEuropean Education Summiton
26 September 2019.
Teachers are the main focus of the latest edition. Teachers are
considered as the factor having the strongest impact on students’ learning
within the school environment.
Using new data, the Monitor demonstrates the common challenges that EU
Member States face to attract and maintain the best teaching professionals.
This challenge is expected to become all the more prominent during the next
decade, during which a wave of retirements of experienced teachers is expected.
This year’s edition of the Education and Training Monitor marks ten
years since the launch of the strategic framework for European cooperation in
education and training –ET 2020. European countries have made great progress towards expanding
participation in education since the establishment of EU benchmarks in 2009 as
part of this process.
