Default UK Education 6th in Global Ranking

Spain isn't even in the Top 20, is this another biased table made up to prove some obscure point ??

I heard on the news this morning that Gibraltar was in the top ten most prosperous countries and then went online to find it.

I came up with the following plus a lot of reports pointing to the same

I think it's very encouraging, especially the emphasis on quality of teaching. Hopefully those people who keep going on about how lousy British teachers are will take note and shut up!

I am not sure I would place too much reliance on Pearson. I think PISA rankings are now 25th out of 50 odd nations? OECD 33rd I believe.
in the 1980s I seem to remember we were in the low teens, but that may be memory. Anyway, there is not much dispute that the UK has been slipping for some years now. Whether that is because others have been improving or the UK worsening really is irrelevant. We are in a global world. There is no turning that clock back.

Indeed, reading recently there are thousands of rich Chinese coming to UK for their education, and they could go anywhere in the world. Loads of UK universities appear in the Worlds Top 100 universities, Spain has zilch. In fact the last time I looked I think the first Spanish one came in around position 150. There are several different lists, one gave the first Spanish uni at around 200.

I dont think anyone has ever professed that Spanish education is "world-renowed"

You do get lots of foreign students though especially Erasmus students. Spain is the no.1 destination for Erasmus students, and there are more Spanish Erasmus students going to unis outside of Spain than for any other country

However, looks like they are scrapping the funding The wife and I are an Erasmus couple, and we now lots of others who are too

Don't know how anyone can come up with these results as both England and Scotland have different education systems.
