The aim with the report is that it supposes to give a much wider global map of education standards than the OECD’s Pisa tests. Since Pisa focus on more affluent industrialised countries. The general result of the analysis is that Singapore is no1 in school education globally and Finland is no1 in Europe (no6 in the ranking globally), while the Swedish school-problems again is manifested (no35 globally).
