Description : The importance of secondary education is being recognized as a terminal stage in education rather than merely a conduit to higher education. While the OECD countries have fairly well developed secondary education systems, countries in Asia, due to differing socio-cultural and historical conditions face a challenge in enrollment, access and quality of secondary education. This study looks at education systems in general and specifically secondary education in seven South-East Asian and four South Asian countries. The aim is to identify and isolate features of the skill development paradigm that is driving restructuring of secondary education systems in OECD countries.
