03/09/2019 - The 2019 edition of the OECD’s annual Education at a Glance will be published at 11.00 a.m. CEST/Paris time (09.00 GMT) on Tuesday 10 September 2019.
Education at a Glance, part of the OECD’s Future of Work campaign, is the leading international compendium of comparable national statistics measuring the state of education worldwide. This year’s report includes a focus on tertiary education, including analysis of students’ participation and progression through university, as well as the economic, labour market and social outcomes of tertiary-educated adults. It also has indicators on the resources invested in tertiary education, both financial and human, as well as on tertiary completion rates, doctoral graduates and their labour-market outcomes, and tertiary admission systems.
One chapter analyses youth prospects and employment in OECD and partner countries, in the light of the Sustainable Development Agenda, including the transition from secondary to higher levels of education and then into the labour market.
Other indicators include: public and private spending on education; the earnings’ advantage of education; equity in entry to and graduation from tertiary education; statutory and actual salaries of school heads; and class sizes, teacher salaries and instruction times.
The report analyses the education systems of the 36 OECD member countries, as well as Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the report’s findings at a press conference with OECD education analyst Eric Charbonnier at the OECD the same day at 11.00 a.m. To register, contact Spencer Wilson, OECD Media Division (+ 33 1 45 24 81 18).
