Student Satisfaction in Hungary Higher Than EU Average, Says Ministry
Student satisfaction in Hungary is higher than the average of the European Union, the human resources ministry said on Thursday, referring to the findings of a survey published in the bloc’s Education and Training Monitor 2021.

Hungary scored 7.12 on a scale of 1-10, while the EU average was 6.8, the ministry said in a statement.

The monitor focused on EU members’ measures taken in 2020, with special regard to the impact on education and classroom atmosphere of the coronavirus pandemic.

Authors of the monitor highlighted Hungary’s encoding the importance of “physical and spiritual health development” at school, stipulations in the National Crime Prevention Strategy aimed at improving security in schools, as well as the introduction of school guards, the ministry said.

The monitor indicates that 92.9% of young Hungarian children attend kindergarten, including 91% of Roma children, the highest such ratio in central Europe, the statement said.
