Education Today 2013: The OECD Perspective

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’s work on these and other important education topics have been brought together in a single accessible source.

Organized into eight chapters, Education Today 2013 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.

Education Today 2013 will be an invaluable resource for all those interested in the broad international picture of education, as well as for those wanting to know more about OECD work in this important domain.
