While millions of students around the world are on their winter breaks this week, today we’re posting an infographic on access to education around the world, provided by Online Classes. Online Classes gathered information from a study on oecd.org, the website for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
The findings of the study show that the majority of children and teens in OECD countries have access to a formal education. On average, 72 percent of three and four-year-olds are enrolled in school, as well as 96 percent of children ages five to 14, and 83 percent of students ages 15-19. The enrollment rate drops off once teens enter their twenties (and presumably the age at which they’d enter higher education), with the average enrollment rate of students ages 20-29 at only 27 percent.
Take a look at the infographic, embedded below, and learn more about how the student-teacher ratio as well as the gender gap varies in OECD countries.
