The Return on College, Around the World – NYTimes.com.

The article looks at the relative benefit of college/university education and international comparisons.

Despite the current, extreme, relative hardship for young people around the World, much aggrevated by policies of excessive austerity, education still really matters.

This is the sort of article that is worth sharing with worried parents and students.

Any thoughts?

Health policies and data – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

This is an interesting and RECOMMENDED READ from OECD. Check it out!

Health policies and data – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

With the UK National Health Service (NHS) in meltdown, it timely to look at international benchmarks, perhaps as a strawman for a UK replacement health service, scrapping the NHS.

Any thoughts on which countries  the UK should follow as benchmarks?
