Classification of Educational Systems in OECD Member Countries. Summary Volume.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This volume explains and summarizes the classification system developed by the Organizaiton for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to provide a basis for collection of internationally comparable education statistics from member countries. The publication, which supplements the OECD published series describing the educational systems of OECD member countries, is intended to provide a simple guide to the type of educational activity included under the headings used and to facilitate comparisons between countries. In the volume's first part, the principal terms used in the classification system and in other OECD documents dealing with education are defined. Part 2, which comprises the major portion of the document, presents synoptic tables showing the different types of education or instruction for each country classified under the appropriate headings of the standardized classification.
