The rankings were compiled based on research conducted by the OECD, academics in the US and tests run in Latin America.
And analysis of 40 years of data in the OECD study has highlighted the correlation between cognitive skills and economic growth.

individuals acquire a solid foundation of knowledge in key disciplines, that they develop creative, critical thinking and collaborative skills, and that they build character attributes, such as mindfulness, curiosity, courage and resilience

the US, the powerful and wealthy one, must ask itself why it is left behind developing countries on the global education ranking

Huy Quốc 21/5/15 23:23

I cannot believe that we're higher the US, the United Kingdom, Australia...

Ensuring that every student in the industrialised world obtains very basic skills would generate more wealth than the total amount we currently spend on education

Quân Hoàng 21/5/15 23:25

Being a high-income country, however, does not mean having zero underperformance in education. The United States, for example, was placed 28th for its test scores, and close to a quarter of its students failed to attain basic skills.
