Canada is the most educated country in the world with an average of 55% of working adults having attained some level of post-secondary education, while most other developed countries are closer to 35%.
Canada has one of the best education systems in the world along with countries like Finland and South Korea. What is very interesting is that, for Canada, having more migrant students does not decrease overall performance like in other countries. It increases it.
Canada is also different from most countries that perform well, because it does not have a centralized education system. Instead, each province is responsible for developing its own education system. Individually, they also perform extremely well on the global scale.
If Canadian provinces entered Pisa tests as separate countries, three of them, Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec, would be in the top five places for science in the world, alongside Singapore and Japan and above the likes of Finland and Hong Kong.
