Classification of Educational Systems in OECD Member Countries: Australia, Luxembourg, Switzerland.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This volume is one of a series intended to provide a comparative view of the education systems of all Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Member countries. It complements an OECD handbook entitled Methods and Statistical Needs for Educational Planning (see ED 023 171). The document is based on the need to establish a conversation key for member countries so that published national data can be readily converted on the basis of a standardized system, as proposed in the handbook. The purposes are to assist OECD Member countries in the development of their educational statistics and to provide a basis for the collection of internationally comparable statistics on educational systems and programs. In this volume, the educational systems of Australia, Luxembourg, and Switzerland are classified by type of education or institution: Preprimary, Primary, General Secondary, Technical Secondary, Teacher Training, and Higher Education. The information requirements, qualifications conferred, organization of studies on a full-time or part-time basis, and other information of possible interest are presented. A glossary of terms used in the OECD classification is provided. (Author/JR)
