Education Today 2010: The OECD Perspective
OECD Publishing (NJ3)
What does the OECD have to say about the state of education today? What are the main OECD messages on early childhood education, teacher policies and tertiary education? What about student performance, educational spending and equity in education? OECD work on these important education topics and others have been brought together in a single accessible source updating the first edition of "Education Today" which came out in March 2009. Organised into eight chapters, this report examines early childhood education, schooling, transitions beyond initial education, higher education, adult learning, outcomes and returns, equity, and innovation. The chapters are structured around key findings and policy directions emerging from recent OECD educational analyses. Each entry highlights the main message in a concise and accessible way, with a brief explanation and reference to the original OECD source. Chapters include: (1) Early Childhood Education and Care; (2) Schooling--Investments, Organisation and Learners; (3) Transitions Beyond Initial Education; (4) Higher Education; (5) Lifelong Learning and Adults; (6) Outcomes, Benefits and Returns; (7) Equity and Equality of Opportunity; and (8) Innovation and Knowledge Management.
