Serbia's EU membership application would open access to EUR 17 billion worth of funds for lifelong education and additional training, Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Bozidar Djelic stated on Monday.

Serbia's EU membership application would open access to EUR 17 billion worth of funds for lifelong education and additional training, Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Bozidar Djelic stated on Monday.

During an educational scientific meeting dubbed 'Education for the Future' in Belgrade's Palace of Serbia, Djelic said that Serbia aims to have around 30 per cent university degree holders by the end of 2020, to ensure that three quarters of children aged 15 are functionally literate and that the percentage of dropouts is reduced to below 15 per cent.

In Serbia today, only 21 per cent of people aged 30-40 hold a college or university degree, and we aim to increase this figure to 30 per cent, the minister said and added that 56 per cent of the country's labour force holds a high school degree only, while a third of Serbia's population has completed primary school only or not even that.

In order to change the situation, Djelic believes that Serbia needs to obtain the EU candidate status and so achieve right to greater funds that would go into education.

Serbia currently allocates EUR 30 billion or 4.5 per cent of its GDP to the sector of education, and the candidate status and EU accession would allow the country to set aside as many as EUR 70 billion for this purpose.

The meeting in the Palace of Serbia was attended by Director of the British Council in Belgrade Tony O'Brien, who said that the society needs to be open and transparent so that countries could learn from one another and cooperate in the area of education.

This is a vicious cycle. A country loses people when it has few jobs that match their talents. The money would be needed to educate or "recall" some of the Diaspora. The amount of people with degrees needs to be "proportional" to the economy, not an arbitrary percentage that reflects some other factor.

To be candid, the program should measure skills not education per se. Many in technology never completed diplomas or degrees because they focused on current passions and talents, not prescribed courses and certificates that "certify" levels of education. (Not everyone can go to Julliard School of Music, so some talent is being produced outside of curriculums and courses.)

Look at the U.S. - more people with degrees, fewer jobs that require degrees. Either people settle for less or companies bring jobs back.
