Education in OECD Countries, 1987-88. A Compendium of Statistical Information. 1990 Special Edition.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This edition of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's annual compendium of statistical information covers multinational trends in education since 1975 and offers data for the 1987-88 school year. Part A covers trends from 1975 to 1986 in educational systems; numbers of students; participation rates at the various levels of education; enrollment rates at certain key ages; participation of women in the educational system; the private sector; teachers; and expenditures. So as not to overload the compendium, only a few charts for certain countries that are representative of patterns prevailing in others are included. However, tables showing the trend in each Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development member country are annexed to Part A. Part B deals with six major topics: (1) pupils; (2) teachers; (3) students; (4) enrollment rates per year of age (except for the years that correspond to compulsory education); (5) qualifications; (6) expenditure. The tables refer only to those countries which provided data for 1987-88. The annex to Part B includes a table showing the age at which compulsory education begins and ends, its duration, the months in which the school year starts and ends, and a diagram of each member country's education system that uses the terminology of the country in question.
