Taking the students’ perspective, Education Policy Outlook 2018: Putting Student Learning at the Centre analyses the evolution of key education priorities and key education policies in 43 education systems. It compares more recent developments in education policy ecosystems (mainly between 2015 and 2017) with various education policies adopted between 2008 and 2014. This report includes around 200 policies spanning from early childhood education and care (ECEC) to higher education and lifelong learning on topics such as: improving the quality and access to ECEC, promoting education success for all students, reducing the negative impact of some system-level policies and practices, increasing completion of upper secondary education, developing quality vocational education and training, enhancing the quality of tertiary education, supporting transitions across education pathways and the labour market.



Previous policies collected, but not included in this report

This annex includes policies from education systems participating in the 2016-17 policy collection exercise that had been collected by the Education Policy Outlook team up to 2015, for which it was not possible to obtain sufficient information on their evolution up to 2016-17. They are listed by country under the two topics of this report: 1) Equity and quality; and 2) Preparing students for the future. For further information on these policies, see Education Policy Outlook 2015: Making Reforms Happen (OECD, 2015).
