Parliamentary question - H-0597/2000Parliamentary question

Request for a documented assessment of the education of children in the countries applying for EU membership

for Question Time at the part-session in September 2000
pursuant to Rule 43 of the Rules of Procedure
by Cristina Gutiérrez Cortines
to the Council

In view of the economic crisis and profound structural changes that the majority of the applicant countries in the enlargement process have undergone, will the Council say whether all children in these countries are receiving an education? To what age is education in these countries compulsory? Is there any means of guaranteeing that all future citizens of the EU receive an education?
