This publication provides the public planned education budgets for 2015, as available in June 2015. Public budgets cover all types of public funding, including funding to private education and support to students and families. However, it does not have the ambition to measure the impact of budgetary changes on neither the quality of provision nor the relation between planned budgets and governmental efficiency objectives. Additionally, it does not address the issue of how funds are allocated at different levels and of funding mechanisms. The national sheets present an overview of the planned... education budgets by type of expenditure and level of education. The budget is generally decided by the national/regional parliaments or other equivalent bodies on an annual/multiannual basis. The focus is on the planned expenditure – not actual expenditure. The national sheets make it possible to identify changes in the education budgets across years, i.e. whether in each country/region the education spending for 2015 was planned to increase, decrease or remain stable compared to the planned education budget for 2014 with the same coverage. The national sheets also provide an important source of contextual information about the reasons for changes in the planned education budgets in general and/or in the different categories of expenditure, between 2014 and 2015. Analysis in evolution of planned budgets between 2014 and 2015 at European level is expressed in constant 2014 prices. The information in the national sheets relates to amounts at current prices.
