UK culture of education reaping rewards on the global scene

28 November 2012

The recent global legal table for education systems places the UK sixth in the rankings. The rankings are compiled based on a number of criteria and have put the UK on a stronger position than was widely expected.

The global comparisons are significant and provide a different view on the education system and will be used as a basis to help understand more about education systems and what really works in the global market.

It would appear that those countries which have come out on top place a lot of emphasis on developing the importance of education and in particular the teaching staff. There is still a way to go in pushing the UK up the rankings but increased autonomy and choice of school structures will continue to drive up standards.
