Which Is the Most Educated Country in the World?
October 2, 2012
The U.S. does not boast the most educated population according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Education at a Glance 2012 report.
4. United States
5. New Zealand
6. South Korea
7. United Kingdom
Not surprisingly, the report found a correlation between the money spent on education and that country's educated population. Not only that, unemployment was much less for the educated adults than the adults without a college degree.
But I'm surprised that Israel and Japan beat the U.S. Does that surprise you, too? Comment here .
