|Abstract:||This thesis analyses the targets for education under Europe 2020 strategy - early leavers from
education and tertiary education attainment. The main objective is to predict the future
development for these indicators up to 2020 and answer the question whether these targets will be
fulfilled. From the empirical perspective, it applies econometric analysis of panel data based on
human capital theory, that relates the education level of an individual with the parental education
and the labour market conditions.
