Education at OECD: Recent Themes and Recommendations
Istance, David
European Journal of Education, v46 n1 p87-100 Mar 2011
The aim of this article is to provide an introduction to the work of OECD in the field of education through its recent projects and reports. It makes no pretence to be exhaustive. It relies heavily on published results of international reviews and comparisons where relatively clear messages have been identified, rather than single country analyses, or clarification pieces, or project plans. The article also offers an introduction to OECD, both generally and to the work on Early Childhood and Care; Schooling--Investments, Organisation, and Learners; Transitions beyond Initial Education; Higher Education; Lifelong Learning and Adults; Outcomes, Benefits and Returns to Education; Equity and Equality of Opportunity; and Innovation and Knowledge Management. A brief assessment of broader changes concludes the article.
