China’s top-ranking public education ranking was revealed today, revealing that students from all over the country attended their primary and secondary schools in the top five-nation rankings.
It is also reported that the government’s primary and high school education system has improved over the past two years, making it one of the best in the world.
China ranked second behind the United States in the latest rankings of the World Education Report 2018.
However, the Chinese education system still lags behind the best OECD nations in almost every area.
According to the World Bank, in 2019 China had the third-worst ranking for the level of education attainment among OECD countries.
In 2020, China ranked eighth among the OECD nations with just over 40 per cent of its population lacking primary and middle school education.
The latest report, released by the World Development Indicators, said that by 2025 China would overtake Japan to become the world’s second-largest economy.
China has been making strides to improve its schools over the years.
More than 2,500 new primary and primary school schools opened last year, with more than 2.3 million pupils attending them.
The government has made a number of investments in education over the last three years.
In 2016, it announced that its primary and special education system had received a $2.8bn loan.
This is the second year in a row that China has been ranked as one of China’s best in education rankings, after the United Kingdom.
