School education in the Slovak Republic

The majority of children in the Slovak Republic attend public schools, although they may be enrolled in different school types according to their interests and ability, with academic selection at ages 11, 14 or 15. There is not a high degree of grade repetition, but there is a well-established culture of transferring students to different schools due to their low academic performance. International and national student assessments reveal a large proportion of underperforming students and a highly inequitable school system. In 2001 the “Millennium” plan for educational reform set out a vision for reforming schooling in the Slovak Republic over a 15-20 year period. Since then, a series of legal reforms have sought to introduce more freedom throughout the school system.
