Learning from Europe

Learning from Europe: Lessons in education

Working paper
Nick Clegg and Dr Richard Grayson
03 May 2002

'Learning from Europe' is a significant contribution to the debate on how our public services can be improved, drawing on lessons from other European countries. The report is based on original research undertaken on visits to Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden, as well as an examination of education systems in France, Germany and Spain. The authors recommend a radical shake-up of the English education system. The paper concludes that England has the most socially divided and centralised secondary education system of all the countries examined.
