OECD’s Education at a Glance 2013 to be published Tuesday 25 June

 

18/06/2013 - The 2013 edition of the OECD’s annual Education at a Glance will be published at 11.00 a.m. Paris time (09.00 GMT) on Tuesday 25 June 2013.

 

Education at a Glance is the leading international compendium of comparable national statistics measuring the state of education worldwide. This year’s report includes new indicators on links between education levels and employment; data on the economic crisis, showing that education remains the best protection against unemployment; the relationship between fields of education and tuition fees, unemployment rates and earnings premiums; and trend data and analysis for all the key indicators.

 

Education at a Glance aims to help educators and policy makers see how their education systems perform compared to other countries and reviews their efforts to reform and improve their policies. The report also addresses: public and private spending on education; its social and economic benefits for people and economies; tuition fees; the outcomes of education based on an analysis of tertiary completion rates; relationship between educational attainment and two health-related concerns, obesity and smoking; and class sizes, teacher salaries and instruction times.

 

The report analyses the education systems of the 34 OECD member countries, as well as Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
