Education in Serbia
In the light of the MICS data
Education is a vital condition of a nation’s prosperity as an economy and society at large.
At the same time, education is also vital for individuals from the perspective of their own personal and professional development and well-being.
Moreover, education is a basic human right. However, we regularly witness the educational disadvantage of many children, often because they are poor, belong to a certain ethnic group, have a disability, etc.
Therefore, one would expect that every state would prioritize education and do everything in its power to increase both the quantity (participation) and quality of educational provisions.
This is in line with a view of education as a tool for social mobility, enabling individuals to improve their social status and prospects for a quality life.
