With the ET 2020 framework European countries have agreed to strive to increase the quality and equity of their educational systems. This study investigates to which extent countries and especially Germany have succeeded in both. Trends over time in educational quality with regard to achievement levels, heterogeneity, equality, equity, participatory and recognition justice amongst 18 European Union members states were investigated using data from PIRLS 2001 to 2016 and TIMSS 2003 to 2015. Results indicate that only 5 countries show positive developments in both equity and quality.
