OECD Publishing
This policy profile on education in the Slovak Republic is part of the "Education Policy Outlook" series, which presents comparative analysis of education policies and reforms across OECD countries. Building on the OECD's substantial comparative and sectoral knowledge base, the series offers a comparative outlook on education policy by providing analysis of individual countries' educational context, challenges and policies (education policy profiles), analysis of international trends, and insight into policies and reforms on selected topics. This profile reviews the current context and situation of the Slovak Republic's education system and examines its challenges and policy responses, according to six policy levers that support improvement: raising outcomes for all in terms of (1) equity and quality and (2) preparing students for the future; raising quality through (3) school improvement and (4) evaluation and assessment; improvement in how the system is organised to deliver education policy in terms of (5) governance and (6) funding. A list of References and further reading is included.
