Education at a Glance 2010

OECD Indicators

Across OECD countries, governments are seeking policies to make education more effective while searching for additional resources to meet the increasing demand for education.

The 2010 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 systems and represents the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally.

The indicators show who participates in education, how much is spent on it and how education systems operate. They also illustrate a wide range of educational outcomes, comparing, for example, student performance in key subject areas and the impact of education on earnings and on adults’ chances of employment.

New material in this edition includes:

  • indicators on school choice and the parent voice in education;
  • an indicator on the long-term economic impact of improved learning outcomes;
  • an indicator benchmarking labour costs by educational levels across OECD countries;
  • a review of trends in educational attainment;
  • an update on the human and financial resources invested in education;
  • an indicator comparing salaries of teachers to earnings of workers with tertiary education;
  • a review of adult participation in education and training.

Hide / Show Abstract

This indicator examines the proportion of public and private funding allocated to educational institutions at each level. It also breaks down private funding by households and expenditures by private entities other than households. It sheds some light on the widely debated issue of how the financing of educational institutions should be shared between public and private entities, particularly at the tertiary level. Finally, it looks at public funding relative to the size of education systems and at how public funding is allocated between public and private institutions.
