Jul 5, 2013

The Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education reports:


A report from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on the state of postsecondary CTE in the U.S. will be released on July 10 as part of OECD’s Skills beyond School project.

This project is the new OECD policy review of postsecondary vocational education and training that looks at the preparation of younger people and adults for technical and professional jobs. The report will compare the U.S. preparation to that of over 20 other countries, assessing its strengths and the challenges to its standing globally in postsecondary education outcomes.

The New America Foundation (NAF) and OECD will host the live release of the U.S. country report on Wednesday, July 10 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT. The event will provide an overview of the main OECD findings and recommendations, as well as a series of panels of experts to respond to the report and its recommendations.

NAF will live stream this event here on July 10.  No pre-registration is necessary.
