Education is not just a matter of national interest, it's strategic, it's a fundamental interest. For over 100 years, the Romanian education system has been constantly changing. At present, there is still a need to modernize the national education system and to create mechanisms for integrating young graduates into the labor market according to their professional training. The year 2018 is an anniversary one in Romania. Statistics of education could reflect the social development of the nation, in term of education system evolution and structure during the last century. This paper presents a summary of data on education collected from a diversity of old statistical yearbooks, historical studies and databases provided by National Institute of Statistics.
