“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
– Nelson Mandela
The truth is each nation has a unique schooling system, why there is a vast discrepancy in how well each country is capable of applying and assisting its young learners in education. And how these nations could possibly leave the most successful, high-income nations racing ahead of the other nations on the planet?
“When it’s shown as an average number of years in school and levels of achievement, the developing world is about 100 years behind developed countries,” according to the Brookings Institution. Moreover, saying which country raking on a certain level is based on a perspective-based globally survey, using the compilation of scores from three equally country attributes: advance public education system, university participation rate and how quality education provided.
Based on the experiment of the following successful countries, the best is keeping student-teacher ratios low and manageable; kids in school longer, and graduate the greatest number of students with a quality education. In the education and training industry, students should be the center of every project after teachers or lecturers. Who are these powerhouses? Read on to learn about 5 of the countries that get a figurative A+ in education — and can school the rest of the world on how it’s done.
Education is for all, without exception allowed. Placing at the top of the Education Index in the United Nations’ Human Development Report, students choosing AUS- the nation of 24 million to study, have to complete an impressive 20-plus years of schooling (The U.S., for comparison, expects 16). In fact, 100% of preschool, primary- and secondary-school age kids are enrolled — and 94% of citizens over 25 have at least some secondary education. 14:1, the common teacher-student ratio that is hand-in-hand full classroom support. Typically with international students, there are many courses created just to welcome new non-English spoken students to feel a little more confident throughout short-term English courses or prep courses.
In addition, the Australia government admirably maximizes helping to educators and school providers. The nation gives incentives to teachers taking rural hardship postings and, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)’s 2015 Education for All Global Monitoring Report, is taking notable “steps toward pay parity for teachers at all levels.”
Who knew that lots of breaks can help create academic aces? Students who don’t begin studies until age 7 is another example of the qualified in education. That the students have to take 15-minute outdoor free-play sessions for every hour of their five-hour school day. And though grades are not given until fourth grade (and schools don’t require any standardized tests until senior year), their students’ achievement is undoubted. Consistently high PISA survey scorers, Finland’s latest rank is sixth in reading and 12 in math. And it’s not just a few smartest who secure the lead. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the difference between the weakest and strongest students in Finland is the smallest in the world.
Struggling with Dutch-speaking, not a problem; students will and always get help when needed to be able to succeed in the Netherlands’ schools.
The country of 17 million — ranked No. 8 in Pearson Education’s ratings and No. 10 in the PISA survey — provides teaching in languages other than Dutch for students in grades 1 to 4 to foster learning in all subjects. And to keep their 94% graduation rate at the secondary level, they also funnel extra funding to poorer and ethnic minority students. According to UNESCO, the primary schools with the highest proportion of disadvantaged students have, on average, about 58 percent more teachers and support staff.
Dissatisfied with their scores on the 2000 PISA tests, the European country reformed their education policy, including, “the adoption of national standards and increased support for disadvantaged students,” per UNESCO, and things turned around for their 82 million populations. Today in the PISA rankings, Germany sits at No. 20 in Reading, a two-spot improvement, and is No. 16 in math, a five-spot jump.
5. The United Kingdom
Of Britons age 25 and older, 99.9 percent have had secondary education in the U.K. (population 64 million). And although England is currently strategizing regarding accommodate the extra 750,000 students that their Department of Education estimates they’ll have in their schools by 2025.
They offer a range of subjects to support students in and out of school. That is why the UK ranked as the 5th best country for education 2019 Best Countries Rankings.
