Education in OECD Countries, 1986-87. A Compendium of Statistical Information.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
Based on national replies to joint UNESCO/OECD/SOEC (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization/ Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development/Statistical Office of the European Communities) educational questionnaires, this compendium of statistical information is the third in a series. It is divided into two parts. Part A gives a general overview of the situation regarding education in 1986-87 and presents, in the form of charts accompanied by brief summaries, a number of the main indicators for comparing educational systems among OECD member countries. Part B deals with six major topics, with a chapter devoted to each: (1) pupils, (2) teachers, (3) students, (4) enrollment rates per year of age, (5) qualifications, and (6) expenditures. The right-hand pages contain both absolute figures and calculations as well as charts showing annual changes between 1985-86 and 1986-87. On the left-hand pages, there is a brief commentary on the information presented. The appendix presents a separate diagram for each member country, summarizing each educational system using the terminology of the country in focus. (JB)
