This report is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors. This report presents the findings of an analysis on basic Education for rural people (ERP) in Croatia and proposes measures to improve access and quality of ERP in order to better contribute to rural development. The report notes that the major problems in basic education are connected to educational quality (i.e. the absence of aspects of rural life in curricula and textbooks, teacher-centred teaching methods, the lack of in-service training available for rural teachers). There are also some problems of access, in particular, difficulties with school transport and access to specific activities before or after normal school-hours. In most cases, the main cause of these problems is weak institutional capacity.
