What is the World Top 20 Education Poll?

The World Top 20 Education Poll  provides annual international rankings of the top 20 education systems out of 209 nations. Each country’s ranking is based on five educational levels: early-childhood enrollment rates, Elementary Math, Science and Reading scores, Middle-School Math, Science and Reading scores, High School Graduation rates, and College Graduation rates.
Each level consists of ranking the top 20 countries by giving a country 20 points for a first place rank, 19 for a second place rank, and so on down to 1 point for a twenty rank. The data is then used to produce the nation’s ranking from a statistical average based on a combined score from all 5 levels.
The poll’s statistical data is compiled from 6 international organizations – the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council (UNESOC), The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and Progress in International Reading Study (PIRLS). Then send to each countries Ministry of Education Department to assure the data is accurate.
The World Top 20 Education Poll mission is to serve as a single body to oversee every child is afforded the opportunity to reach their full potential; by working with nations to strengthen their education system. The poll’s creator, the New Jersey Minority Educational Development (NJMED) organization, is also the programmer for the 100% Graduation Rate Program, which works with hardest to reach student population, at-risk minority males, in the United States. The 100% Graduation Rate Program raised high school graduation’s by 49% in one of the U.S. poorest and most violence cities, Camden, New Jersey, from 1996 to 2006.
