Andreas Schleicher, OECD Deputy-Director of Education speaks about the key finding of this year's OECD Education at Glance. He talks specifically about the impact of the economic crisis and says, education spending is rising but access to higher education remains unequal in most countries. He mentions that education has become the most powerful lever for equity and countries with unequal school systems fare the worst. He argues that governments should increase investment in early childhood programmes and maintain reasonable costs for higher education in order to reduce inequality, boost social mobility and improve people's employment prospects.
