Found at www.oecd.org/edu/lighthouse, the site encourages discussions and document-sharing among members of the fast-growing OECD social network and provides links to relevant papers and analysis. Members can also participate in related polls, such as: "Do you think education was also responsible for the financial and economic crisis?" When the Observer went to press, the poll showed 25% of respondents replying "yes", 45% answering "no", and 30% saying "partly".
The OECD Education Directorate will provide up-to-the-minute information, evidence and analysis on the impact of the crisis on education, with concrete examples of how governments and institutions in different countries are coping.
