Quality of School Life and Student Outcomes in Europe

Assenka Hristova and Ekaterina Tosheva
EENEE Analytical Report No.44 2021

There is little research offering consistent estimates of the quality of school life aspects across EU education systems and analysing their predictive value for different outcomes of schooling. As such, this report aims to fill the existing gap by providing a research model for measuring the subjective quality of school life for EU students based on large-scale international assessments like the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). 

The report captures the quality of school life aspects that could be considered universal across European school systems, despite the specific national policy, institutional and socio-cultural influences, and provides strong evidence of the importance of their promotion in EU countries.
