Abstract:

This publication examines overall trends in higher education enrollments and the evolution of S & T compared with other disciplines. The results suggest that although absolute numbers of S & T students have been rising as access to higher levels of education expands in OECD economies, the relative share of S & T students among the overall student population has been falling, The report shows that encouraging interest in S & T studies requires action to tackle issues inside and outside the education system, ranging from teacher training and curriculum design to improving the image of S & T careers. Numerous examples of national initiatives are used to complement the analyses to derive a set of recommendations.--Publisher's description.
