Bangalore: The emphasis laid on education in today’s world may have made it accessible to a large population, but the need for good education is a constant search both for students and parents everywhere. This has indicated the need for the international comparison in education. The latest league table published by the education firm Pearson is prepared based upon a series of global test results along with the level of education systems, like how many students go to university. The study lists three Asian countries on top but India does not find a place on the list.



Countries have been ranked around the world for best education system providing the top 20 list. At the first place is Finland and South Korea follows on the second place. UK is ranked sixth on the list.



These rankings are given by adding the international test results and data like graduation rates from 2006 to 2010.



Pearson’s chief education adviser, Sir Michael Barber, claims successful nations give high status to teachers and follow a ‘culture’ for education.



Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore are three Asian countries on the 3rd, 4th and 5th place respectively for their high performing education system.

1: Education, well there are different 'kinds' sold in the name of education, and those who don't know the difference between good and not so good, end up making their children pay for it.
