The research was conducted in Serbia during 2014, by using a survey method. The results of the research point to the fact that participants of the survey are of an opinion that the country in question doesn’t invest enough efforts or means in promoting education, as well as the fact that it is inefficient in its struggle against emigration of its young population abroad.

Common opinion of the participants is that educational institutions are quickest at adjusting to the needs of the market, but that further reforms of the educational system are necessary.
