      Hello,

      My apologies for the cross-posting. OECD's Education at a Glance 2007 was
      released today and is available for downloading (> 443 pages) at:
      http://www.oecd.org/document/30/0,3343,en_2649_201185_39251550_1_1_1_1,00.html#new

      Following is part of the executive summary:

      Education at a Glance is the OECD's annual round-up of data and analysis on
      education, providing a rich, comparable and up-to-date array of indicators
      on education systems in the OECD's 30 member countries and in a number of
      partner economies. The main areas covered are:

      - Participation and achievement in education
      - Public and private spending on education
      - The state of lifelong learning
      - Conditions for pupils and teachers

      The 2007 edition investigates the effects of expanding tertiary education on
      labour markets. Graduation rates from higher education have grown
      significantly in OECD countries in recent decades, but has the increasing
      supply of well-educated workers been matched by the creation of high-paying
      jobs? Or will everyone with a university degree some day work for the
      minimum wage? Using recent data and indicators comparable among OECD
      countries, Education at a Glance 2007 finds that the expansion of tertiary
      education has had a positive impact for individuals and national economies,
      and that there are, so far, no signs of an inflation of the value of
      qualifications.
