    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

    These top ranking East Asian countries stress mechanical, rote learning in their schools. As a result, they have not won nearly as many Nobel Prizes as the US and UK, opting instead to copy Western technology. But the one thing they have not adopted is their educational system.

    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

    Singapore's education system is not what many people think it is. It does not produce students who truly think. It only teaches students to get around the systems used for testing their so called intelligence and competencies. That's why you don't see many great figures coming out of our tiny little nation. Our education teaches us to be crafty, not smart, and somehow, at the same time, blindly obedient and submissive to all those above us. We don't question authority. We only stick to what we are taught and rarely ever adapt and improvise when what we are taught doesn't work. You think this kind of people are really smart and can solve real problem? No.

    I live in Singapore and our education system isn't that great. Firstly, there is a social hierarchy because 12 year olds are sorted into different schools with different levels of prestige based on their PSLE scores. In Singapore, the content that is usually taught in secondary school/high school is taught in primary school/elementary school. Students are pressured into learning difficult content by their teachers and parents. I am in secondary school and most students (including myself) are regularly sleep-deprived and stressed.
