This volume is published by Emerald Publishing as part of the International Perspectives on Education and Society series.

The impact of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on education around the world has been dramatic and increasing in scope since the 1990s. As one of only a few multinational organizations to have widespread impact on the decision-making related to education among policymakers and practitioners alike, the OECD’s particular influence is relatively under-examined. This volume investigates the role that the OECD plays in the development of educational policy, influence on the development and reform of curriculum and instruction in schools and classrooms, the distribution of resources for teaching and learning, and the transition of youth from school to their life beyond graduation is, therefore, crucial to investigate and understand.
