Education at a Glance 2010: OECD Indicators
Across OECD countries, governments are seeking policies to make education more effective while searching for additional resources to meet the increasing demand for education.
The 2010 edition of Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators enables countries to see themselves in the light of other countries’ performance. It provides a rich, comparable and up-to-date array of indicators on systems and represents the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally.
The indicators show who participates in education, how much is spent on it and how education systems operate. They also illustrate a wide range of educational outcomes, comparing, for example, student performance in key subject areas and the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment.
The Excel™ spreadsheets used to create the tables and charts in this book are available via the StatLinks printed in this book.
New material in this edition includes:
Chapter A: The Output of Educational Institutions and the Impact of Learning
Chapter B: Financial and Human Resources Invested in Education
Chapter C: Access to Education, Participation and Progression
Chapter D: The Learning Environment and Organisation of Schools
This interactive tool allows you to generate printable reports (including tables and graphs), comparing the core education indicators of a given country with those of another.
