Good Luck.
new report into world education shows Finland has best system. global study is called "The Learning Curve" and is from British magazine "The Economist". It aims to help governments provide better education to students. 52-page report looked at education system in 50 countries. Researchers analysed millions of statistics on exam grades, literacy rates, attendance, and university graduation rates. Asia did well in report, with South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore finishing second, third, fourth and fifth. United States came 17th in study, while Mexico, Brazil and Indonesia filled bottom three positions in top 50.

The Learning Curve reported on five things that education leaders should remember. first is that spending lots of money on schools and teachers does not always mean students will learn. Second is that "good teachers are essential to high-quality education". report said teachers should be "treated as valuable professionals they are, not as technicians in huge, educational machine". Numbers three and four are that country's culture must have strong focus on importance of education, and parents have key part to play. Finally, countries need to "educate for future, not just present." report said: "Many of today’s job titles…simply did not exist 20 years ago."
