Global experts put heads together

4th November 2005 at 00:00
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's first global forum on education took place in Santiago, Chile, last week, organised jointly by the OECD and Chile's ministry of education.

It brought together ministers of education and experts from 17 developed countries and 22 developing countries, to discuss the most pressing issues facing students and schools.

They debated everything from the results of the OECD's Programme for international student assessment (Pisa) to lifelong learning, how to achieve quality and equity in schools, and the challenges posed to higher education in a globalised world.

The OECD plans to make the forum an annual or biennial event.
