  3. Some figures on education Net enrolment rate for primary schools 88% Less than 10% of children 3-6 y have access to early childhood education Only 10 % of children with special needs attend school Less than 75% of children who complete compulsory education continue to enrol in upper secondary school 55% of K-Albanian girls and 40% of non-Serb minorities. Almost no Roma girl continues secondary education 70% youth unemployment rate
  4. Key findings of the study Most of the Kosovar youth have rated education above average or better Very small percentage rated poor or somewhat poor Older youth are less enthusiastic about quality of education comparing to the younger ones
  5. …most of Kosovars highly value education,because education is important: for all aspects of life preparing for a job ensuring a better status in society good citizenship and helping me develop this country widening my perspectives
  6. More education 93 per cent of respondents request more education 13-18 want more than 19-24 youth high percentage of those who have dropped out from school reqeusted more education
  7. … Main factor that contributed to achievement of their desired level of education was "personal interest and motivation“ For Serb youth: financial means is the main factor.
  8. … Neither of the subgroups mention politization as a factor that influenced their education attainment Youth very often expressed their concerns on the frailer to fully implement educationrefoms throughout Kosovo

  13.  Youth across Kosovo want increased youth involvement to urgently address their concerns and ideas and meet their strong demand and expectations for high quality education
  14. advocacy messages The demand of the Kosovo adolescents and youth for improved quality of education is the last call for all stakeholders to strengthen the support in secondary and higher education The economic growth and social inclusion are pending on investments in education, empowerment and participation of youth
