According to their respective responsibilities both central government and the cantons provide for high quality and permeability in Swiss education. To fulfil this task the Swiss education system is monitored and checked on a regular basis. In December 2006 the first education report was published that contained edited data and information from statistics, research and administration. Taking into account external evaluations and feedback from people involved in education it was decided to publish a national education report every four years. The reports are available as downloads.
