Beyond Compulsory Schooling: Options and Changes in Upper Secondary Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
In the context of increasing school enrollment, the functioning of the school system and, in particular, the teaching structures of second-cycle secondary education play an essential part in determining the educational, vocational, and social choices of young people. It seemed appropriate, therefore, to define this role and to examine the nature of the principal changes introduced at this level of study in the majority of member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. This is the specific object of this report. Part 1 contains a short, critical analysis of the options now being offered to young people and of methods of transition and choice in regard to such opportunities. Part 2 deals with notable policy measures for improving, renovating, and diversifying present educational options in the light of countries' experience and of elements of the analysis itself. The employment opportunities for young people and the proposals designed to improve conditions of work and of entry into working life for them are mentioned only very briefly as they are the subject of a separate report.
