In America our nation cares more about the military than education. If education had a high budget we would be number one.

Oh My Gosh ! Just look at what the meant for one of the countries with the lowest education systems,South Africa. I live here and it's a shame for all citizens to see this, the basic education governing body doesn't even care. Like this comment if you're South African and see this.

Periphery Asian countries may have the highest standardized test scores (as a result of drilling in the facts and rote memorization), but they end up copying and improving on game-changing inventions and scientific breakthroughs made in Western countries whose students may have lower test scores, but where emphasis is placed on skepticism, questioning established rules, challenging authority, and nurturing broad-mindedness and thinking-out-of-the-box.

But you gotta keep in mind that not all the other countries have to teach students of all sorts of backgrounds. The diversity in other countries is probably non existent as oppose to the US, where all students are diverse, some English learners, students with disabilities, etc...do other counties include students with disabilities in their standardized test scores?? More likely not, what about students who don’t speak their native language? Are they also included in the scores? See, the USA is oftentimes critiqued by how low test scores are, but have they considered that we teach students from all over the world! Your country only teaches students from your country, not immigrants. We have to keep adjusting our teaching strategies to meet the needs of ALL students, not just the high income/advanced students. It’s called No Child Left Behind.

The culture thing seems to always pop up. Asian immigrants outperform white students, black and other minority students. Why? Because of culture. Seth MacFarlane may joke about it with his "talk to me when you doctor" bit on Family Guy but I challenge someone to disprove me.

I can be sure that China's education department is the most failed in the world. I knew because i am a student too, in China, high school children study very hard, but in the University, a lot of people do not even want to open their eyes, the curriculum is half, but many students do not have a notebook, very sad, I hope our country should change the education system, we just need some graduates with good abilities

...kids need just 2 or 3 hours in school a day, it's enough. To sit in a classroom for 8 hours is ridiculous, it's torture in fact. I've always said this and always will, Scandinavia has got it right, kids will learn better be fresh and ready if they know they just have 2 or 3 hours a day at school, ... Monday it's Art , Tuesday it's math, Wednesday it's Biology, Thursday it's Story reading, Friday it's P.E, (with break time in each class) next week new subjects. The subjects can be tailored to the students wanting, if they so choose. Make school fun, not unpleasant and boring.

I do think Finland has the best if you include how creative and happy they are. Many of these East Asian countries overwork their students and although they get very good grades, they have a high amount of suicides and in Japan there's even a word for dying from being overworked because it happens so much. Finland students are very intelligent and top the charts, but they are also free and happy(obviously not always).

We have yet to even agree on what a good education is supposed to do in this day and age, judging by the comments here and also wildly differing views around the world. These rankings are always based on some assumptions on what a competent education look like. Not to mention it's virtually impossible to weed out all biases and lack of experimental control that materially distort the comparison amongst such a large group of countries (for e.g., randomised selection of kids, linguistic differences, etc.)

I doubt many people would read this comment but I’m a secondary school student from Singapore and I’m in a school that have entry PSLE score of above 250. Supposedly top 10%-20% of the student population are entered here but to be frank, I’m not happy. I may just be a minority case but I barely smile and I find forming social relationships uninteresting and I’d rather spend my time doing something else. On top of that, I’ve been diagnosed with multiple mentally related disorders which I’d rather not state. And truth to be told, yes, many students in my school at least, takes studying = memorising. Even me. We memorise the contents tested from our textbooks and vomit it all out in our essays and exam scripts. In fact, many students are weaker in questions which require more critical thinking and logic. So yes, we may produce the top students numbers and As during tests and exams, but I don’t think our country’s education system is producing effective and all-rounded individuals whom are active learners and psychologically healthy. I’m pretty sure we have high suicide rates- and I had also attempted suicide once in my life. I’m still 14, going on to 15. I don’t think this is right for an education system, but then once again, I’m just a robot too afraid to challenge the norm of following instructions. However, at the same time, I do support certain aspects of the system. The fact that students are filtered based on academic ability and entered with other students with similar educational standards, it allows lessons to be better tailored and there’s usually little to none academic hierarchy. In my school, no one cares about their rankings, we all just look at our own number and either celebrate or mourn our results, but usually the latter. Not only that, but we are given many opportunities to learn outside of school, attend events and meet different groups of individuals. For me, I’m in the debate club so I have opportunities for public speaking presentations, debating competitions, emcee-ing for school events and also build up on my social adaptability and confidence. On the outside, we may just seem like lifeless students spending hours and hours on studying, but I appreciate that there are efforts made to strike a balance between simply studying and also acquiring valuable life skills that cannot be learnt from a textbook. Oh and also, I don’t have any additional tuition courses. I only visit the library close to my mid-terms or finals and spend at most 4 hours a day during the weekend to catch up on content that I’m unclear about. I also manage to run at least 5 days a week so it differs for every student here. I end school at 1pm most days of the week and 6pm when I have co-curriculum activities.

You can not rightfully compare the lack of students in the UK finishing school with a basic level of education to the high amount of 9 and 10 year olds in the US failing to read at their grade level. Both of these statements have too many variables involved to make that statement without backing it up with data supporting the similarities.

Italy should be in this list as well. ompared to other EU countries, many Italian students get very high grades and manage to get into universities from around the world by having attended the Italian academic system. However, it is too concentrated on memorizing and tons of homework.

Good education: pay teachers descend salaries and you will attract better teachers! Today many primary US school teachers have IQ < 100! ....what do you expect our children learn from them.... Singapore has a great educational system! And of course improvements can be made (which system cannot improve); a teacher in Singapore has a competitive pay, they also have a policy in place to attract good teachers! And all the comments about robots.... well should we say the countries ranked <20 produce dumbcunts? How unfair is such a comment. I believe it was in Arizona a study showed the following: 10% of population is Asian, at college 20% are Asian, at university 40% are Asian, and post-graduation, Asians make majority.... further they found in Arizona Asians pay highest tax per family due to their significantly higher incomes taxes (Guess why 🙄) ........ used to pay social support for those who did not have the opportunity to study or worse for those who did not take the opportunity to study!

Hey im a 16 year old from India. I feel that comparing asia with west is irrational. Countries like India and China have huge populations and less land hence the competition ia alot, dont know about other countries but a typical student aspiring to score A in high school here has to study 2~3 hrs every day along with 6 hrs of school. The pressure is moderate, the simple reason that countries in asia focus on more tests so as to provide poor children living in villages equal opportunities of getting into a college, I feel there’s nothing wrong in this. feel free to comment and discuss

The definitions of `educating' , education', `educator', etc. are too fragmented to be meaningful, it seems to me, and seem beside the point, anyway. What everyone wants is `learning'. `Teachers' and `educators' are supposed to promote learning, but not so many do that. Far more likely to work, it seems to me, is to show people and young people `what there is to learn'. Give them the opportunity and means to `explore' subjects to the `depth' they want, and when a match is found, the job of the system is mostly done. To me, the secret is having `environments to learn', where students can find what they want to learn, and then have the resources to learn at the rate they want to learn. Nothing should prevent any person or young person from learning more than one subject at a time, and/or at different rates.

Me, South Korean in 2016: Senior(Gosam in Korean), Sleep 6 hours/day(pretty much in korea actually), Spend 16 hours(7~23) in school if not weekend, spend 10 hours in private institute(Hakwon; not accurate word I found) if weekend, repeated this everyday every week! Best education if you wanna make clockwork machine instead of human.

It is very surprising not to see Germany mentioned, as the general culture which the educational system gives students is both very thorough and intelligent. The Humanities are given full respect as they should, since Germany understands that whether for the sciences or literature, anthropology and the likes, we need to be generally well rounded and reflective, as opposed to being a trained parrot who performs little practical tasks without any deeper understanding of the world. By the way, I am not German
