As an additional service to its IMHE members, OECD has brought together relevant HE information from various sources in this new publication.
Among the salient points:
- HE may yield considerable public and private returns on investment, but not for drop outs.
- HE also leads to significantly better health, longer and more enjoyable life life, less crime, more social engagement, and more democracy.
- HE institutions can do more to enhance employability of graduates.
- Existing quality assurance mechanisms still generally fail to measure education outcomes and impacts; the AHELO feasibility study attempted to fill this need, but was faced with many difficulties.
The publication also contains a number of opiniating articles, on HE finance, quality assurance, internationalisation, new HE providers
