For children, the education system includes elementary schools, junior and senior high schools, and finally universities. The education system covers the socio-economic factors that usually influence schools at the state, federal, state, and community levels. The volume emphasizes that education is a key part of any development. Knowledge can increase wealth and well-being; college graduates in most countries earn higher incomes. The volume shows that people who have completed a high school diploma are more likely to show good health and wealth, than those who have not received a high school education. However, the education system needs to be monitored and improved to provide better educational opportunities-starting from early childhood education and continuing throughout life. They need to provide people with the knowledge, skills and tools needed to stay competitive and involved in society. Some of the topics covered in this book include; chapter 1: education systems in Europe, chapter 2: access to education in Europe, chapter 3: educational choices, transitions and aspirations in Europe, and chapter 4: globalization and Europeanization of education.
