  • I don't think its a country by country thing....every province (state) and city is different. even the different school systems are different. teach the same thing pretty much but in different ways.

    I've never been to school in a different country but I know that from a rural school to a separate catholic school things are WAY different. I prefer the catholic schooling to the other.

  • I agree with the pp, it can vary so much just by regions in a country, and private vs public, that to judge a country's educational system overall is difficult. Any country that strives to educate all of it's citizens though, has the right idea.

  • Just a little side note. Norway and Sweden have incredible high literacy rates which is often credited to their schools systems. This is a contributing factor. But one thing often overlooked is the fact that their languages are much less complicates than English. Since it is easier to learn, of course more people learn to read.

    English is one of the most difficult languages to learn to read because most of our phonics conventions only apply 60-80% of the time.

    Since I have no first hand experience with foriegn school systems I really dont' have an opinion on this question.

  • Not the US. I would have to say China or Japan. They value education a lot more than the US does.

  • I remember reading somewhere that Japan has the #1 education system in the world, but that was a few years ago so things could have changed by now...
