This is an excellent must-read article from WEF citing the 2016 UNESCO Global Education Monitoring report. It highlights work still needed to provide universal education at all levels.

There is an enormous difference between the scores for richest and poorest. For example, secondary educational standards for the poorest in the UK are on par with third world in Africa.

In a similar survey of OECD countries, the UK was bottom for literacy and second to bottom, behind the US, for numeracy.

My theory is that it’s the bureaucracy and the radical left-wing unions that are constraining the quality of education in Anglo-Saxon countries?

Thoughts?
