OECD (2012). Education Today 2013: The OECD Perspective. OECD Publishing.

This summary report is based on results from OECD work produced in recent years by the Directorate for Education. The approach chosen focuses on results and policy orientations which are published and hence in the public domain. The publication is divided into eight chapters, devised as a structure to reflect well the different areas of educational work and to bring out policy conclusions and messages: early childhood, schooling, transitions beyond initial, higher education, lifelong learning, outcomes and benefits, equity and equality of opportunity, and innovation and knowledge. Each chapter contains an introduction, key findings and policy directions in the field.
