Synopsis

THE NEW COUNTRY INDEX is an essential tool for interpreting the educational backgrounds of people who have studied outside the United States and who need statements of educational equivalencies to enter the U.S. educational environment and workforce. This handy reference provides an outline of world educational systems and is used extensively by a variety of organizations in the assessment of foreign academic credentials. Compiled by current and former staff and board members of the International Education Research Foundation-the oldest and one of the most respected foreign credentials evaluation agencies in the United States-THE NEW COUNTRY INDEX is a uniquely thorough reference for colleges and universities, professional organizations, state licensing boards, U.S. government agencies, foreign ministries, counseling services, recognition agencies, and attorneys and individuals. Easy-to-follow tables clearly map the varied structures of both the U.S. and foreign educational systems, making it possible for anyone to determine U.S. equivalents of foreign credentials. Includes interpretations of the educational systems of 70 countries from primary education through higher education, including academic secondary patterns and information on secondary level studies, teacher training, commercial education, and technical, vocational, and professional training. The most reliable, convenient, and practical reference of its kind.
