The World Top 20 Education Poll provides annual international rankings of the top 20
education systems out of 260 nations. The Poll mission is to serve as a single body to
oversee every child is afford the opportunity to reach their full potential; by
working with nations to strengthen their education system.
Each country’s ranking is based on five
educational levels: early-childhood enrollment rates, Elementary Math,
Science and Reading scores, Middle-School Math, Science and Reading scores,
High School Graduation rates, and College Graduation rates. Each level consists
of ranking the top 20 countries by giving a country 20 points for a first place
rank, 19 for a second place rank, and so on down to 1 point for a twenty rank. The data is then used to produce the
nation’s ranking from a statistical average based on a combined score
from all 5 levels.
