Organization:Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
Short Description:The 2008 edition of Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators enables countries to see themselves in the light of other countries’ performance.

Annotation:The 2008 edition of Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators enables countries to see themselves in the light of other countries’ performance. It provides a rich, comparable and up-to-date array of indicators on the performance of education systems and represents the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally. The indicators look at who participates in education, what is spent on it and how education systems operate and at the results achieved. The latter includes indicators on a wide range of outcomes, from comparisons of students’ performance in key subject areas to the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment.
