Global Education Digest 2007

Published October 2007

This report focuses on global education and provides extensive statistical tables. The foreward states, "The analysis in this year's Global Education Digest (GED) focuses on the financing of education, especially at the primary level. As national policymakers set goals and objectives for their education systems, such as expanding access or improving quality,they need to consider the resources required and weigh them against other needs. Increasingly, policymakers look to international comparisons for guidance in whether they are investing sufficient levels of resources in education and whether they are using these resources efficiently and effectively.”
