The World Top 20 Education Poll’s first quarter rankings for the World’s Best Education System will let students, teachers, and parents vote online to help select the country on March 31.
The 2014 World Top 20 Education Poll ranks and monitors 220 countries education systems from five developmental levels – early-childhood enrollments for 3 to 4 year olds; reading, math and science scores for children from 5 to 10 and 10 to 14; and high school students 14 to 19 completion rates with 19 to 25 year college graduation rates.
Data used for the ranking system, is gathered from 5 international data bases, and confirmed by each nations Ministry of Education Department for the accuracy of the data. The data results are then combined for a total score, and divided from the five developmental levels, to give a country its final score and ranking.
Based on last year’s poll results, Japan led all four quarters of the poll. This year, the World Top 20 Education Poll’s publisher NJ MED (New Jersey Minority Educational Development) have decided to start its poll’s first quarter rankings based on online voting. Along with the amount each country spends per student (compared with their economy gross per family), and the countries ranking from last year’s poll, to project the poll’s first quarter top 20 rankings on March 31, 2014.
Global Outcry for the Truth
To help generate community discussion, and encourage more national debate to improve education. NJ MED hopes this new approach, will strengthen the poll’s influence on its mission to educate every child on the planet. By giving the stakeholders students, teachers and parents a say, good or bad; they want the poll to reflect, what the people think. Who are directly affected by their countries educational structure and values!
While, the World Top 20 Poll’s 2nd, 3rd rankings and final poll results will come from the poll’s data base results and the confirmation information it receive from each country. Students, teachers, and parents can help vote online for their country’s education system. Thus, encouraging their country to participate in the poll with more actual data from their Ministry of Education Department (which last year only 43% of countries provided, or confirmed their data) for true transparency!
