The Educational Situation in OECD Countries: A Review of Trends and Priority Issues for Policy.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
An analysis of the educational situation in Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member nations is presented in this report. Members are Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, The Federal Republic of Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Part One comtains a resume of priority areas in educational policy, such as basic education, national development strategies, reform of upper secondary education, diversification of post-secondary education, recurrent education, and teachers and innovation. Two major conclusions emerge from these priorities: that the role of education has broadened into one of a social service and that education has to be more closely related to other policies of government if the social service objectives are to be realized. Specific findings are discussed in the three chapters of Part Two: Growth in Enrollments and Teacher Supply, The Costs of Education, and Changes in Education Structures and in the Quality of Education. An annex includes statistical sources for each of the member nations. (JH)
