Education at a Glance 2015: OECD Indicators
OECD Publishing
"Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators" is the authoritative source for accurate information on the state of education around the world. It provides data on the output of educational institutions; the impact of learning across countries; the financial and human resources invested in education; access, participation and progression in education; and the learning environment and organisation of schools. The 2015 edition introduces more detailed analysis of participation in early childhood and tertiary levels of education. The report also examines first generation tertiary-educated adults' educational and social mobility, labour market outcomes for recent graduates, and participation in employer-sponsored formal and/or non-formal education. Readiness to use information and communication technology for problem solving in teaching and learning is also examined. The publication provides indicators on the impact of skills on employment and earnings, gender differences in education and employment, and teacher and school leader appraisal systems. The report covers all 34 OECD countries and a number of partner countries (Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Latvia, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, and for the first time, Costa Rica and Lithuania). This book is organized into the following chapters: (1) The output of educational institutions and the impact of learning; (2) Financial and human resources invested in education; (3) Access to education, participation and progression; and (4) The learning environment and organisation of schools. The following Annexes are included: (1) Characteristics of Education Systems; (2) Reference Statistics; (3) Sources, Methods and Technical Notes; (4) Contributors to this Publication; and (5) Education Indicators in Focus. Individual chapters contain references.
