This publication presents the highlights of the Report on the State of Education. Its main goal is to strengthen public debate on education.
We review the research of the last decade, organise facts to show their significance and draw on findings to build a large consensus around education. Sometimes we state our views but our intention was to pose questions rather than provide definitive answers or ready solutions.
However, the title of the 2010 report "A society on the road to knowledge" reflects the view of the authors that after 20 years of transformation education is still halfway between a rigid system of the past and a flexible, dynamic system which not only adapts to the changing environment but is also the driving force behind social and economic development.
The increase in the social value of education is one of the greatest achievements of the last two decades in Poland. Its effects are evident in improved educational achievement and growing aspirations. This initial success forms the basis for future development. The authors believe that we must seize the opportunity to build on these high aspirations.
