Interesting graph

Graphs can give heaps of information at a glance.

The length of the line between the square and the triangle shows historical progress, or lack of it, in getting people into tertiary education.

The longer the line, the better the progress in improving access to tertiary education.

Some stunning results:

  • Germany has gone backwards. Older people are better educated than young.
  • The United States, with Estonia and Brazil, is lousy. Let’s hope Obama sees this.
  • Korea has made a stunning effort to educate its people.

The graph is from Education Today: The OECD Perspective (March 2009) (PDF).

WordPress software with the Blix theme makes it look small, but you can cut and paste to blow it up.
