Main trends in access, quality and equity

During the last two decades Latvia has made good progress in expanding participation in education. While the number of students decreased considerably in absolute terms as a result of ongoing demographic decline, the share of the population in education has grown considerably since the mid-1990s. Children in Latvia start school young, younger than in many oECD countries, and the majority continue on to tertiary education. in Latvia more than eight out of ten young adults are expected to enter a tertiary-type A programme during the course of their life (oECD, 2014b). national and international data show improvements in average student performance although they still point towards considerable disparities in learning opportunities. Latvia recognises these equity concerns and is committed to implementing its inclusive education policy, targeting two main groups: children and youth at risk of exclusion due to their development, abilities or health condition; and those at risk of exclusion due to social conditions (MoEs, 2014).
