Education Policy Analysis 1998.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
This volume is the companion to the 1998 collection of international education indicators from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), "Education at a Glance--OECD Indicators." It aims to deepen the analysis of current policy issues, particularly those pertaining to lifelong learning, and facilitate interpretation of data using selected indicators of particular relevance to policy issues under consideration. The four chapters analyze: (1) lifelong learning; (2) teachers for tomorrow's schools; (3) supporting youth pathways; and (4) paying for tertiary education. This volume provides both an overarching framework which sets out key elements of a lifelong learning approach and an analysis of priority issues from a lifelong learning perspective. A monitoring tool to track progress toward the realization of lifelong learning is advanced for the first time. References follow the chapters. A statistical annex provides data for the figures. (Contains 2 tables and 20 figures.) (LMD)
