20 Best Education System in the World

Education is of paramount importance to an individual as well as society. No matter which region or country we are living in, we must preserve our education system so that it helps us in preserving our knowledge.

Education system

Education helps an individual to grab basic understanding about civilization and their role as a civilian.

But as the geographical region differ, the education system in different countries differs.

Therefore, in this article, we will get a brief glimpse of 20 such different education systems of the present world and their ranking through a yearly poll.

Note: The list is prepared by considering some factors like developed education system for the public, quality of basic and higher education and rate of students attending university.

Below is a list of 20 education systems in the world.

The list of 20 education systems

1. Finland

The title is yet to be official; however, according to a survey made recently, Finland has the world’s best education system. The country has been in the limelight since the year 2000 and successfully made into the year 2018.

In fact, when five new parameters were added in the year 2017 for the categorization of best education systems worldwide, Finland managed to perform well and gave strong competition to South Korea and Japan. The country ranked higher on indicators, like;

  • Teachers to student ratio
  • Number of passing students in primary schools
  • Number of passing students in secondary schools

Power Ranking score: 114

2. Japan

Like Finland, Japan has also maintained its second position for three years. Despite such tough competition by South Korea and other countries, it has been bragging the second position without fail. The main indicator contributing to its success has been – development of an understanding of students between the age of 5 to 14.

Power Ranking score: 104

3. South Korea

South Korea has been a three-time winner of poll (World’s 20 education systems), and it has successfully earned the third position every time. It has given a strong competition to Japan for the second position.

After Japan, only South Korea has worked well in the sector of bringing immense development in students in the age of 5 to 14 years. As per surveyors, the country would have been a strong contender for the 2nd position, but a few indicators made it lose.

A few indicators which denied South Korea second position in the poll are-

  • Fall in test scores of high school students (calculated annually)
  • Fall in test scores of graduation students (calculated annually)

Power Ranking score: 101

4. Denmark

Denmark has never been a celebrated country for its ranking in the poll yet it has been known for its developed education system among elites.

Earlier, Denmark was on position 8, but due to passing the five newly included indicators, it has taken a giant leap from 8th position to 4th.

The indicator that helped Denmark to jump on the 4th position is – increased teacher-to-student ration for secondary and primary schools.

Power Ranking score: 94

5. Russia

No matter Russia has gained 5th position, yet it should be applauded for being in the top 5 countries with the world’s best education system. Russia’s education system is known for preparing students workspace ready. It also has a good teacher-to-student ratio.

If we talk in numbers, then Russia has a ratio of 1 teacher to 9 students approximately.

Power Ranking score: 91

6. Norway

Norway was on 16th position in the earlier quarter. However, with certain changes in its education system, it has jumped ten positions and successfully landed to 6th position. If we talk about its teacher-to-student ratio than it is ‘1 teacher to 10 students approximately.’

It has competed well with Russia and Japan in term of teacher-to-student ratio.

Power Ranking score: 82

7. The United Kingdom

Although this country would have been a great competitor to all the five-pointers in the list, yet current clashes between government and teachers has made it fall back on 7th position.

United Kingdom, could get better if government prudently handles the current situations like giving better wages to teachers, enhanced classroom support to students and rendering each class with modern educational facilities.

Power Ranking score: 78

8. Israel

No matter Israel is kept on 8th position in terms of the education system, it ranks second in terms of the better upbringing of kids and a developed childhood. If we compare the development with yesteryears, people can gather immense changes and betterment.

The enrolment rate in primary schools and graduation has increased a lot, but still, it could not help Israel to grab a position in top 5 until the next year.

Power Ranking score: 77

9. Sweden

Like its other Nordic mates, Finland, Norway, and Denmark, Sweden has really performed well to keep the pace.

Its progress in the field of education has been impressive from 2015 to 2018. In terms of increased enrolment of students of age between 15 to 18, it has ranked third among the countries.

However, it still has to work hard to improve its world’s top ranking to get in the first five.

Power Ranking score: 75

10. Hong Kong

If we take account of the last year’s poll of the world’s top 20, then Hong Kong was at 14th position. It has really worked hard on prime indicators and managed to reach the top 10.

The indicator that helped Hong Kong lift its position is – higher enrolment rate of primary age students.

If it works out on enrolment of all age students and their passing test scores then, it could even raise its position and get counted among the top 5.

Power Ranking score: 70

11. Netherland

Unfortunately, Netherland has lost one spot and dropped from 10th position to 11th. The reason behind its negative acceleration is decreased international test scores in subjects like science, Maths, and reading.

If the country works on this indicator along with others, then it could possibly regain its former position.

Power Ranking score: 67

12. Belgium

With the most complex education system, including three different communities like Flemish, German and French, Belgium shines on 11th position.

During annual surveys, it secured a 4th and 9th position for teacher-to-student ratio and 5th position for increased enrolment of students primary and secondary age in school.

To score a position in top 20s, Belgium has to work hard with two primary indicators,

1) students enrolment rates and, 2) teachers-to-students ratio.

Power Ranking score: 65

13. Germany

Germany is known for its social and economic justice worldwide. The country has worked hard to reach the top 10 but couldn’t due to lack of improvement in a few indicators in the last two years.

Currently, the country is fighting to retain a position in top 10 but it couldn’t until it brings desired changes in the education system.

Power Ranking score: 63

14. China

No doubt china’s employment rate is pretty high, but still, this factor could not make the country to bag a secured position in the list of top 10 this year.

It was in position 9 in the year 2016, but it failed to repeat the same in 2017. Since then, China is improving its education system to get it a position among top 10 countrieṣ.

The only thing which could help China is improving the enrolment rates of students of early age.

Power Ranking score: 62

15. Singapore

Known as the world’s best test-taking country, Singapore had ranked highest in primary and secondary international tests in subjects like Maths, science, and reading in the year 2016.

Later, the score somewhere settled and made the country struggle to get the highest position back. They failed to achieve two indicators, enrolment of students of primary and secondary ages, and international test scores in maths, science, and reading.

A good investment in the education sector could make this country shine again and grab a position among the top 10.

Power Ranking score: 57

16. Portugal

Portugal has always shown a pendulum movement between below average, average and good.

In 2018, the country was predicted to secure a position in top 20, but it failed. However, this year, the country not only entered in the top-20 list, it even secured the 16th position which is comparably good.

In terms of better enrolment rates of primary and secondary ages, it ranks 2nd highest. If it works hard, it could make into top 15 soon.

Power Ranking score: 54

17. Hungary

Last year, Hungary secured a 20th position, but this year, it managed to jump three ranks up. If Hungary maintains its highest teachers-to-students ratio in secondary school, there are chances that it could finish in the top 15.

The only indicator, Hungary is unable to fulfill, is higher graduation rates.

Balancing higher graduation rates could slip Hungary to top 15.

Power Ranking score: 52

18. Estonia

Out of Northern Europe, Estonia is 8th country to grab a rank. In 2018, it failed to grab even a position in top 20 whereas, this year, it managed to get the 18th position.

If the country works a little on indicators like higher enrolment rates of primary and secondary school students and higher international test scores, it could grab a better position this year.

The only helping indicator in its growth is – a higher completion rate of primary school students.

Power Ranking score: 50

19. France

Having the highest enrolment rate of early childhood made France stay in the top 20 last year.

If it works hard and continues to invest wisely in the education system, it could retain its position successfully in top 20.

As the present government is taking extra care and investing in the educational system, it could secure a position in the top 10 by the year 2020.

Power Ranking score: 50

20. The United States

Because of the transition in the State’s government, it has to stay put at 20th position. In the last year, it had secured 7th position but catastrophically failed to maintain it in this year.

The indicators are suggesting that the United States will either get its position back or jump a position backward.

Power Ranking score: 47

12 Creative Ideas for Tracking Classroom Behaviour

Tracking of classroom behaviour is very important in today’s learning portfolio but doing it without shaming students or giving the feel of punishment is a challenge.

Teachers are looking forward to creative ways to track their behaviour that paves the way for positive reinforcement.

In fact these trackers can be a great option to help students correct any unknown flaws and make positive decisions throughout the learning phase.

Certain classroom behaviour trackers can even make the learning sessions more interesting and students will feel more engaged and diligent.

Here we are sharing some of the amazing creative ideas that are teacher tested that can track the classroom behaviour of students in an interesting, joyous and friendly manner.

1. Classroom Data Sheets

This is an improved version of the old behaviour chart used in traditional classrooms.

There will be different columns spread out in the sheet including punctuality, complete uniform, attendance, complete assignments, weekly test marks, classroom distraction and more.

Teacher will have to take some extra time out of their teaching time to fill out these columns for each student by the end of the day.

The chart will be analyzed monthly and students can get an idea of their behaviour pattern over the month.

Teachers can be stricter by asking the monthly report to get signed by the parents or make it simple by giving just warning and a chance to correct them.

2. Number Line

This is a more systematic way of tracking the behaviour of students on a scale of -10 to 10.

First of all teacher should make clear about the ‘classroom rules’ to students and let them know about how their behaviour is assessed.

This gives students a clear vision of how to behave in class and work towards earning more points.

Teacher can give marks from 1 to 10 in the number line for a positive behaviour and give marks from -10 to 0 for any negative behaviour. The total marks earned for each day will be a sum of these marks.

If their score is low for certain days, students can work to improve their monthly score by behaving well for rest of days.

3. Behavior Bingo

This is an interesting game that helps to manage the classroom in a jovial way.

Teachers can place a chart with numbers from 1 to 100 in 10 horizontal rows.

There will be a box of marbles with magnet attached to the backside. Whenever a student comes up with a good choice, accomplish a task or reach a milestone, they can attach a marble to the number on the board.

The ultimate aim of the game will be to get a complete line of numbers full like horizontal, vertical or diagonal just like the bingo game.

That is why it is a team game as students will be motivating each other to earn the points and get the final prize.

Teachers can even discuss rewards for each line completed.

4. Classroom Coupons

Kids would love this strategy to track classroom behaviour as they get a chance to fulfil their small desires in classroom with a good behaviour.

Students can gain coupons for their good deeds in classroom and lose it if they fail to meet any ‘classroom rules’.

At the end of every week or month, teachers can analyze the coupons when they can exchange it to fulfil certain activities.

The list can include ‘kid’s desires’ like switch seat when they can move their seat near to their particular friend or wearing sun glass to school and more.

This strategy is sure to inspire students to have a look on their behaviour.

5. Bee-havior Punch Cards

This is a cute but effective way to encourage good behaviour and positivity among students.

There will be a punch card numbered from 1 to 20 in a circular motion.

A student can punch the card once against a number when they are given a positive feedback by a teacher for their classroom behaviour.

When a student succeeds to fill up the whole punch card, he will be getting a reward.

The type of reward can be decided after discussion with students and know their interests beforehand.

This encourages kids to keep up their behaviour and earn what they like in the form of rewards.

6. Blurt Beans

This is another creative way of assessing and correcting student behaviour in classroom.

When teachers are finding it difficult to control the student actions by just advising, this idea can do the trick.

All students of the class will be given X number of beans at the start of the class. Each time when the student violates a ‘classroom rule’ like blurting out answers, a bean will be taken back.

Likewise, the number of left out beans will be counted at the end of the day to see where they stand.

Kids can have a look at the result to get a physical reflection of their actions in the class.

This is sure to motivate them in the upcoming class days to improve the number of beans retained.

7. Personal Clip Chart

We have seen classroom management clip charts that are designed to manage the class as a whole.

This personal clip chart method is used to help each student to have a look at the impact of their behaviour in class and gets a chance to correct it.

The chart can include columns like great, good, warning and finally parent contact. The clip will be placed on the chart based on their behaviour.

Teachers can even give different colours to these columns to give an impact.

The method gives a clear visual warning for their unwanted behaviours and will inspire students to focus on their chart and behave better.

8.  Star Bucks

This is a fun strategy of classroom management that works on Star Wars and Monopoly Money.

This interesting game plan gives kids an opportunity to earn money for ticking the lines for good listening, daily attendance or punctuality or for completing certain special deeds.

At the same time, they have to pay back to teacher if they violate any ‘classroom rules’ like blurting out answers or distracting classroom.

Teachers can fix a time every week to analyze these points and kids can ‘shop’ with the money they earn every week.

9. Digital Marbles

In this interesting method, teachers can set different goals for classroom to earn marbles throughout the day.

You can flexibly add a reward amount for each marble type or personalized rewards and then set targets to achieve those marbles.

Teachers can give a finishing line like 15 marbles for a class and students can work together to achieve the line and then start all over again.

In traditional classrooms, teachers used jars to fill up the marble but today’s classrooms prefer the idea of digital marbles.

If your students are not really interested in physical jar or marbles or if there is not enough space in the room for these, digital marbles can do the trick.

You can even polish these ideas to include digital cookies, hot cocoa or sundaes.

10. Daily Behaviour Charts

This is a comparatively simple but effective idea for tracking classroom behaviour.

A chart is prepared using all the subjects allotted for the day and ‘break times’ like brunch break and lunch break. Numbers 1, 2, and 3 will be marked against all these categories.

The corresponding teacher for the subjects will give a mark for each student depending on their behaviour during the period.

At the end of the day, each student will get the final mark which will be the average of each category.

This strategy gives them an opportunity to improve their scores throughout the day.

11. Team Tables

This is a fun but creative way of promoting good classroom behaviour.

Class can be divided into four groups based on their seating arrangement and name them with a colour, say red table, blue table, green table and yellow table.

The performance of each table will be evaluated based on many categories like punctuality, attendance, communication, up to date with lessons and following ‘classroom rules’.

Marks of each table will be a team effort and this helps them to work together as a team and bring in good sportsmanship. 

The winning table for each month will be given rewards based on the student interest that can be decided beforehand.

A token of love gesture can be to put up a customized balloon in the corner of classroom with winning table’s name on it.

12. ClassDojo

All the strategies discussed were more or less manual ideas to track the classroom behaviour and improve it.

Class Dojo is one of the most efficient tools for tracking the classroom behaviour digitally. Its feedback feature performs like a conventional classroom points system.

However, it records more information in a speedy and efficient manner and the calculations are done using a computer or mobile which would be more accurate.

Moreover, they provide immediate feedback to parents and teachers and changeover results from students will be more speedy.

However, teachers should make sure that these ideas won’t turn disruptive to instruction but carried out in a systematic way.

Also just tracking the behaviour alone does not complete the task but teachers have to sit to sort it out to change the negative behaviour if any.

It is important to discuss with students to learn if they are comfortable with these tracking tools.

Teachers are not supposed to enforce any behaviour tracking tool to a class which will bring negative results.

If they find it shaming or a waste of time, it is always good to ask them to come up with better ideas if any and implement it as a team.

Some teachers even follow the idea of private behaviour chart for students who are interested and use other methods to track the general behaviour of class.

Top 13 Strategies to Improve Students Attendance

The school or college attendance is the primary principal point in which students lack these days.

If you take a look at the most pressing issues in colleges regarding students, you will find student attendance levels to be in the top 3.

The situation has deteriorated to such an extent that students no longer care about the potential consequences of a low attendance tag while attending schools/colleges.

Frankly speaking, are not aware of the drawbacks of low attendance, or we can say that they are not aware of the benefits to attend the school/college regularly.

Low attendance can harm their studies and build immense pressure during exam times.

Therefore, the attendance of any college or school should be 100%. To achieve the scenario, here we have 13 proven strategies to improve student attendance in the classroom.

Strategies to Improve Attendance

Low attendance is directly proportional to low achievement. These days most students miss their school/college due to various reasons like social anxiety, poor performance, bullying, etc.

However, they do not understand that low attendance is only impacting their ability to learn.

So, the responsibility is shifted towards school/college to apply strategies which could make attendance 100%.

Some strategies

1. Link attendance with the Grades:

School/college management should link the attendance percentage directly to the student’s overall grades.

When a student is aware that, low attendance means low grades, then he will always try to improve his attendance.

2. Informing their Parents:

Many schools/college have used this strategy, and it has come up with excellent results.

While applying this strategy, the school management has to inform the irregular students’ parents about their low attendance.

For students who love to bunk their classes more often, fear of being scolded by parents will never encourage them to miss classes.

Students who obey parental authority can be persuaded, in this manner, to improve their attendance records.

For example, getting students and parents in one room and informing them of their ward’s behavior can jolt them into action.

Parents are often the most productive people who can convince their children to do better.

This must be leveraged upon by management.

3. Developing a Friendly Atmosphere:

The management should try to establish a friendly atmosphere within the institution which will attract the students.

It will help to regularize the irregular students. This strategy works in a positive way which affects the minds of the students who have a fear of hard and harsh atmosphere which is prevailing in 90 percent of the institutions.

If the atmosphere gets modified into friendly-one, the student’s attendance will surely improve in a positive manner.

It will enhance their academic performance as well as their attendance; they will not feel bored with their institutions.

4. Adding Curricular & Co-Curricular activities:

Schools, as well as Colleges, should take essential steps to add different curricular as well as co-curricular activities. Measures like these would prompt them to actively participate in several activities with their classmates.

This can prove to be an incentive for higher attendance levels. Curricular activities like Internships, Cultural Clubs, Debate teams, Volunteer works, etc. and Co-Curricular activities like Theatre, Music, Dance, Drawing, Recitation, Poetry, etc. should be introduced, so that the students are led to take an active part in them, thereby causing them to attend the school regularly.

5. E-Education:

E-Education setup should be installed in the classrooms to reinvent teaching methods.

Institutions should be fully upgraded with the latest technology like computers, I-pads, projectors, etc.

With the involvement of technology, students interest will incline more toward coming to school/college rather than bunking.

The 21st Century has been marked by a shift towards modern mediums of learning. Students these days tend to prefer education systems that utilize technology to make their content more engaging.

To take advantage of this, you should ensure the complete modernization of teaching equipment at your school.

PCs, iPads, projectors and smart learning devices must be installed and used while teaching.

This system cannot work without the active involvement of the teachers. Therefore, you must ensure that the teaching staff is up to date with modern teaching practices.

Once you show students what your institution’s teaching capabilities are worth, they will start turning up in numbers like never seen before.

6. Biometric Attendance:

Another commonly used system in modern offices and institutions, biometric attendance is an excellent way to keep track of student attendance.

Unlike conventional attendance-taking measures, which can easily be faked, biometric attendance can prove to be a game changer.

It requires the physical presence of the student via his fingerprint,

thus ensuring he is actually present for classes. A list of defaulters can also be drawn up quickly, generated by the system, and be dealt with as per school policy.

This measure would prevent students from slipping out or faking their attendance.

7. Rewarding the Most Regular Student:

Rewards are often the best way to get anyone to do something. This measure must be utilized.

The students with highest attendance rates can be rewarded in public with trophies or certificates, commending them for their attendance.

Once students realize that their high attendance rates would gain them renown, a surge in the number of students turning up regularly should be observed.

8. Holding Awareness Programs:

Various Awareness Programs should be held in the context of low attendance.

These awareness programs will make irregular students aware of drawbacks of the low attendance and advantages of being regular in the institution.

And these hard-to-appear-in-class students will surely try to increase their regularity in the schools and colleges.

9. Modification in Teaching Techniques:

Traditional teaching techniques must be overhauled, and interactive methods should be employed, to make the subject more interesting for students.

We all know how a good teacher, with an impeccable teaching style, is worth much more than every other measure.

Teachers with a unique style must be encouraged and promoted.

They should be put in charge of other teachers to help train and improve their performance.

By enhancing interactivity and engagement via new teaching methods, students will begin signing up for more classes in no time.

10. Addition of Artistic Subjects:

Every student has a creative side in them. Promoting their creativity by adding some subjects like Music, Dance, Theatre, Literature, etc.

This can help any institution reach the goal of 100% attendance. Extracurricular activities have been shown to be a significant draw for enhancing student attendance levels.

Programs and workshops related to music, dance, theatre, and literature can be made part of the school curriculum for the student’s all-round development.

It will make the students stand out of the queue and develop their personality. The interest will bring them to school regularly at any cost.

11. Cultural Programs & Functions:

Cultural Programs and Functions should be held regularly. It will increase the interest of students.

By making them participate in these functions to showcase their talents, attendance can be improved.

12. NCC & NSS:

NCC & NSS should be introduced in all the schools and colleges

. It will profoundly affect the discipline of the students and will result in improving their attendance.

As in NCC and NSS like organizations, they are keen about the student’s discipline.

These organizations introduce students to different games, patriotic functions, camps, etc., which attracts the students and they start to attend the schools and colleges regularly which in return improves their attendance.

13. Regular PTM:

The school and college management should plan regular Parent-Teacher meetings so that they can give proper reports of wards to their parents. These meetings will keep parents well informed about the achievement or failure of their wards.

Final Words

With many institutions struggling with concerns over student attendance levels, it is essential that you do not fall into the same trap.

Implementing the measures listed above should go a long way in retaining students and boosting their attendance rates.

Remember, a school is most-often only known for its alumni. If you want your school to do well and make a name for itself in the public sphere, the discipline must be improved.

And the first step towards doing that begins with improving their attendance rates.

6 Steps to Setup School ERP

Opting for a School ERP, a centralized platform to unify all aspects of school functioning is the first step in the direction of the smart school.

A streamlined process spikes up efficiency levels and saves a lot of time at hand to pay attention to more important aspects of progress.

Implementing a School ERP for your institute requires strategic planning and execution prior to installation.

Here is a step by step procedure to go about the implementation process.

Select one employee from each department to assist you

Departmental knowledge is key when choosing a set of people who will be the pioneers of the adoption process.

These will form a group that will assist the admin in setting up the relevant modules of the School ERP customized to the needs of your institution.

Identify the problems and goals of each section

Once the team is formed, conduct a brainstorming session where the problems and goals of each department are upstaged.

Lay down a complete roster of the analytics and functions that make up the process.

While you craft a set up for the current volume of institutional functionalities, consider the possibilities of imminent changes and scalability.

Analyze and select the School ERP best suited for your needs

Once you have a clear consensus of the goals and objectives, it is time to choose the right School ERP service provider.

In the face of overwhelming options, how do we pick the best School ERP.

Budget is an important aspect to consider before you move ahead with your decision.

Then comes the secondary factors like ease of implementation and adoption rate.

Here are a few things to factor in while making the choice

Make sure that the chosen School ERP

  • Enhances the current process flow
  • Blends in the legacy systems without a painful procedure
  • Drives collaboration
  • Has enough room for scaling up with new updates and schemes

If your chosen vendor is offering inclusive migration support, that accounts for a great deal.

Migrate only important data from Legacy Systems

Compare the source data and the target data of the School ERP system to pick only pertinent information.

Data gathering is an imperative step before commencing with module implementation.

It would be wise to assign the responsibility of getting relevant data curated to respective heads of departments.

Once all the data is gathered, get the respective teams of trained personnel to assist the vendor with the process of data import and further ahead with the implementation of the modules.

Allocate Adequate Time for Practical Training to Employees

Before making the system live, conduct training sessions until the staff gains legible audacity, to operate the system with the least confusions.

Change management is hard. Almost 56% of School ERP implementation procedures fail to cause process disruption owing to lack of proper training.

The most sensible way to achieve a desirable adoption rate is to assign a test system to each employee who forms an explicit part of the process.

The test system simulates the original ERP and helps foster a clear understanding of its features.

For this very reason, once employees are faced with a live system, they will have enough confidence to perform the tasks more effectively.

The Final Test

Before going live, it is mandatory to test the system to identify potential issues.

On completion of migration, test the data system to highlight any issues with functionality, interface, transactions, and reports to name a few.

Once the system is scanned for issues across all functionalities, then would be the right time to make it live.
