Which countries have the smartest kids? | World Economic Forum

Kids in Estonia are perfoming among the best in the world. Why ?

Standard test for 15 year olds are the best in Europe.They are positioned as 4th in the world of science,5th and 8th for reading and mathematics respectively.

1.Estonia expects high standards from every Child with resources available to succeed and books,transport and lunch are free.

There has been construtction of new efficient building with fewer resources in the long term.

Teachers salaries are on increasing pedestal to attract smart candidates.Irrespective of the structure and size of the community be it rural,urban,small or big the expectation to achieve the best is the priority.The family background has less impact on students achievements or school results with the link between thei socioeconomic status and reading skills weaker than the OECD average.

2.Teachers have autonomy

Teacher determine their own methodology as long as it is they stick to the curriculum.The government employs teacher with masters degree only.

3.Estonia digital technology fast

According to TES,they were among the first countries to integrate digital skills into the curriculum.It is projected that in 2020,every school in Estonia mush be able to teach using only digital learning materials.

World Economic Forum as how could schools in improve in the country?
