e-Mine to Make Education More Transparent

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, October 8, 2018 – The application called “Šer – Školski e-Rudnik” (Share – School e-Mine in an unofficial translation) has been recently launched by the Science and Education Ministry in a bid to make a set of statistical data available at a single site.

Presenting the application, Minister Blaženka Divjak has said that this application will make the ministry more open to the public.

The application can offer answers to most frequently asked questions about the schooling system, for instance how many schools there are in Croatia and how many students are now in the country. There are statistical data about repeaters or pupils with difficulties, for example.

The minister says that the data in the application will be updated continuously. She says that currently there are 1,343 schools throughout the country plus 1,195 small area schools.

During the presentation of the application, the minister has informed the press that in this school year, there are 45,000 pupils fewer than five years ago, or 9% less. Currently, 463,888 pupils are enrolled in this school year.

In primary schools, the number of pupils fell by four percent and in secondary schools plummeted by 17.86%. The biggest decline of 30% is in three-year vocational schools.

The application also gives information about students with difficulties. Currently there are some 28,000 students with that status, and the minister explains that this category of students includes, for instance, pupils with insufficient knowledge of the Croatian language.
