OECD’s “Education at a Glance” 2014 is out!
The traditional OECD review on education indicators has finally been launched last week. The publication provides comprehensive data from 34 European countries on various topics such as education spendings, levels, environments, links with the labour market and wider benefits of learning. Surprisingly one of the key findings of the report suggests that between 1995 and 2011 spending per student in primary, secondary and post-secondary non-tertiary levels increased in almost all countries by more than 60%, even though the crisis have greatly affected public investments. “Education at a Glance” also contains very interesting data on adult education, showing for instance that highly literate adults are more likely to think they are in good health than adults with low literacy levels.
