Abstract: It is well known that after 1990 the number of school population has decreased. Also, because of multiple curriculum modifications, among other reasons, the education quality, especially pre-university one, has recorded a decrease that is not yet stable. Of all complex aspects that concern education, this paper analyzes the transformations produced in Romania’s counties from the school population number, teaching staff number and number of classrooms point of view, between 2000 - 2015. The results obtained by cluster analyses for 2000 and 2015 show a tendency of convergence and uniformisation for more than a half of Romania’s counties, although emphasizing differences in counties such as Cluj, IaSi, Constanta, BraSov or Bucharest.
