School attendance has increased six times over the last thirty years in Portugal, in primary/secondary teaching.  In 2006 some 2 million students were attending primary, secondary and university levels, of which  1,7 million students were attending first to twelfth year of school.  Of the latter, 322.000 were in Lisbon and surrounding areas, split 82% in public schools and 18% in private schools.  Unfortunately, this data conceals important geographical, social and economic disparities.  The Portuguese education system is still languishing well behind the rest of Europe (with Malta), where only 50% of students complete high school.
