Abstract: Education is one of the most important factors influencing income and wellbeing of individuals. Participation to education and its outcomes are spatially patterned. Educational disparities between various social groups who are concentrated in different areas appear at the intersection of their resources (economic, social, cultural, symbolic) and the way the education systems available to them function (Ballas, 2012). The present paper explores statistics on education enrolment, school dropout and education outcomes at county level in Romania, with focus on primary and lower secondary education. Our results are relevant for better informing policies aiming at reduction of early school leaving and improving transition to higher levels of education.
