This was followed by reforms to the labour market and pension system (both ideas supported by 90% of Luxembourg respondents), and the health system (89%).
Luxembourg, which has a multicultural population with 48% of residents of foreign heritage, has among the highest paid teachers in the world and spends over three times the average budget of EU members in pre-primary, primary, secondary and tertiary education. Yet it consistently ranks under-average in the OECD Pisa scores, a global benchmark of student performance.
Luxembourg DP education minister Claude Meisch announced in March 2018 the country would participate in Pisa surveys every six years instead of every three years. At the time, he expressed a hope that the grand duchy would collaborate with countries which shared common traits in relation to migratory backgrounds and multilingual learning contexts.
