The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) gathers and publishes information on education systems around the world. It is important that the information be correct. This allows for comparisons of educational systems around the world.
This presentation examines Canadian ‘national’ statistics and information from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and from Canadian organizations, e.g., Council of Ministers Education, Canada (CEMC), Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). At first glance, Canada’s ranking in the world of education is quite high. Canada’s real place in international education is much lower if the real ‘national’ education statistics and information are used.
Serious questions must be raised about the reliability and validity of the ‘national’ education information and statistics from Canada. These questions may also affect research using such information. Researchers should be cautioned about the use of such Canadian information and statistics.
