Basic Study for Strategies for Establishing Networks on Education Statistics among Japan, China and Korea



As the world becomes more globalized and informationized, the needs for international comparison in search of more effective policies are getting higher. Responding to the needs, European and North American countries, with international organizations such as OECD and UNESCO, have been actively collaborating on sharing educational statistics and developing education indicators. However, since the development and analysis of indicators has been led by major European and North American countries, it is hard to say that existing education indicators meet educational and political needs of Asian countries. Accordingly, it is important for Korea/China/Japan to collaborate on national educational statistics, and cooperate to satisfy educational and political needs of the three countries and overall Asian countries. Especially, as Korea has been collecting education statistics nationwide for about 50 years and participating in OECD Indicators of Education Indicator (INES) since 1997, it has accumulated knowledge about education statistics and indicators, and is capable of playing a leading role in cooperation regarding education statistics.
