Estonia is known and recognized worldwide as a successful and innovative e-state.
Education is valued in Estonian society — it has always been considered both a guarantee of individual success and one of the main drivers of the country’s development.
The level of education of Estonian people is one of the highest in the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD). Ninety percent of 25- to 64-year-olds have at least upper secondary education, the OECD average is 75%.
High-quality education is equally accessible to all, and obtaining education does not depend on the socio-economic background of parents or the gender of the student, as the state and the local government support the education of all children
Over the past 20 years, Estonia has undertaken multiple reforms that have made obtaining education more learner-centered, modern, and forward-looking. We have applied best practices from other countries and have been assertive in discovering and trying new things.*
