Statista dossier about education in Belgium

This dossier presents statistics and facts about education in Belgium. It includes figures on the different educational institutions and their employees from primary school up to advanced education, and figures on government spending on education. Because of different state reforms, education has not been a federal competence in Belgium since 1989. Ever since, it has been a competence of the three different (language) communities, which are the Flemish community, the French-speaking community, and the German-speaking community.
