The EU_Educators group on Facebook is designed to provide a forum for educators (European and global) that are interested, involved or wish to be aware of the European Union Lifelong learning programme.
This programme is the largest globally and is designed to support the integration of education across all 30 EU member states (plus Switzerland, Croatia and Turkey). It focuses on innovation in ICT, language learning and methodologies, as well as most aspects of education, all levels.
In Europe there is an institution called 'The Eurydice Network' that compiles many statistics and observations of 33 countries in Europe http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/education/eurydice/index_en.php . I also believe that UNESCO compiles similar, if not as deep. statistics.
