Latest OECD report shows need to invest in education in times of crisis (11 September 2012)

EI has reacted to the launch of the latest Education at a Glance (EaG) by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). This report states its case for a public investment in education, arguing that the gap between well-educated and poorly educated persons has widened as a result of the global recession. EaG also reiterates that access to (higher) education is crucial for the return to economic stability and social development.
