Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators. 2000 Edition.

This document provides an up-to-date array of indicators representing the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally. It provides information on the human and financial resources invested in education, on how education and learning systems operate and evolve, and on the returns to educational investments. Indicators are displayed in six chapters: (1) "Context of Education"; (2) "Financial and Human Resources Invested in Education"; (3) "Access to Education, Participation and Progression"; (4) "The Learning Environment and Organisation of Schools"; (5) "Individual, Social and Labour Market Outcomes of Education"; and (6) "Student Achievement." The 2000 edition provides new insights into the financing of education, with a focus on public subsidies and transfers for education and their beneficiaries. New indicators also reflect on international student mobility, participation in skill improvement among the employed population, and students with special educational needs. For many indicators, more countries are now providing data. Countries that are not members of the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development have also contributed to the 2000 edition, extending the coverage of some of the indicators to almost two-thirds of the world's population. Three appendixes contain information on typical graduate ages, basic reference statistics, and the methodology. A glossary is also included. (Contains 87 charts and 116 tables.) (Author/SLD)
