Résumé : When the Commission devoted a communication to the efficiency and equity of European educational systems in the European Parliament and Council, the experts in analyzing educational policies could only rejoice as it was echoing their works (Crahay 2000, Demeuse, Baye, Straeten, Nicaise & Matoul 2005). While the topic of this communication deserved the interest of researchers in particular and of all school actors in general, it left attentive readers on their guards. Under the guise of a specific interest in preschooling, the arguments concerning compulsory education were rather lightweight and those on higher education worrying. This paper raises the concerns and questions that remain after the reading of this communication.© De Boeck Université.
