This is the fourth time OKI has published a comprehensive report on public education. “Education in Hungary 2003” is a shortened version of the Hungarian original aiming at giving a detailed analysis of current educational policies, challenges facing the system of public education and reactions given to it.
The report is addressed to a large audience: those who, at national or local level, make education policy decisions or have an influence on them, teachers who have an interest in the development of the broader system of education, students in education, researchers who need data or background information for their research, and last but not least the well informed citizen who wants to know more about what happens in Hungarian public education.
