Welcome to the Kiwi land! New Zealand is followed by Canada and Finland. The United Kingdom was in sixth place, Australia in eighth and USA in 12th. China, a country that often comes out on top in the PISA index, ranked 31st.
The study outlined that New Zealand’s success were based on two main areas.
Firstly, New Zealand views educating for future skills as a broadly-agreed strategic imperative: it is a small and remote country, with the vigilance that comes with knowing that it has little choice but to be globally competitive. Secondly, it has a systematic government-led approach to making its education system fit for purpose, across technology, teaching, curriculum and collaboration with industry. The Ministry of Education’s introduction of Communities of Learning and new digital technologies curriculum have played a part in the New Zealand education system’s success in these areas.
