World Education Rankings: Canada, the USA & the UK

Here's an interesting article about how the UK education rankings compare with the rest of the world.  Guess what Canada?  We beat 'em.  And we beat the USA too. 

Don't get overly-excited though.  This is all based on one study comparing maths, reading & science results around the world, and while we should be proud for being third, we also have to question this kind of a study in the first place.  As teachers, we know how dificult it is to judge education on test scores.  Teaching these days is far more than tests.

But take a look anyway and let me know your thoughts on the issue.
