New data about the education system in Croatia reveals that there are 880 basis schools in the country and a further 1,120 satellite schools.

There has been a constant decrease in the number of pupils across the country for years, although the number of pupils from the 2019/2020 to 2020/2021 didn’t change drastically.

At the end of the 2020/2021 school year, the number of basic schools, the number of departments and the number of pupils did not significantly change compared to the end of the 2019/2020 school year. The share of female pupils was 48.7 percent. There were 66.3 percent of state basic schools and 100.0 percent of private basic schools that provided school meals.

The teacher/pupil ratio in the regular education in the same school year was 1:8.7. The same ratio in the education of disabled children and youth was 1:1.8. The share of women in the total number of teachers was 81.9 percent.

More than four thousand pupils attended classes conducted in languages of ethnic minorities.
