29-09-2006 - Malaysia and Tunisia give a greater share of their budget to education than most OECD countries, according to a new report from the UNESCO Institute of Statistics. The report presents and interprets education indicators for the 2004 school year.

Entitled Education Counts – Benchmarking Progress for 19 WEI Countries, the report is the first in a new series concerning the World Education Indicators (WEI) programme. It focuses on educational attainment, finance, participation, as well as teachers and the learning environment for 63 countries.

Using this report, the 19 countries in the WEI programme can now compare their educational results to those of countries in the OECD. It is therefore being released in parallel to the Education at a Glance series, which provides similar data for OECD Member States.
