Education at a Glance: A promising Outlook for Ireland?


While the OECD statistics in Education at a Glance describe Ireland as having a promising outlook in that we invest more in education per student than most OECD countries, and that 93% of young people are expected to graduate from upper secondary education in their lifetimes we still have the fifth highest rate of unemployment among the OECD countries. The data show that the lower the levels of educational attainment the higher the risk there is of being unemployed.
