On 25 June, the OECD and the European Commission will present the 2013 'Education at a Glance' report, which provides key information and data on education and training in OECD and partner countries, including 21 EU Member States. The report enables decision-makers to compare education and training systems, and to draw lessons for future policy.
Issued annually, the latest report includes data on how much is spent on education, new indicators on the link between education levels and employment, data on the economic crisis, showing that education is the best protection against unemployment, s well as trend data and analysis.
The report features data from the 34 OECD countries. These include 21 EU Member States (Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom), 4 other European countries (Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey), and 9 non-European countries (Australia, Canada, Chile, Israel, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, United States). Furthermore, data is presented for Brazil, the Russian Federation, and – in some cases – Argentina, China, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
6 EU Member States are not covered in the report as they are non-OECD members: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta and Romania.
The report will be presented by Andreas Schleicher, Deputy Director for Education and Skills at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and Xavier Prats Monné, Deputy Director General at the European Commission's Directorate General for Education and Culture
