In my school in America, there is too many Mexicans bringing our grade down. They don't even care about their grades. I am only in 5th grade but My reading level is 10th grade. Most Mexicans are stupid idiots who don't care about being successful

I don't get why having decent readily available education is so difficult. Knowledge is the only inexhaustible resource we have on this planet. There has to be a far better way to go about education than the way the world has it now. Personally I think the whole education system needs a progressive overhaul as the current one seen throughout the nations is archaic this day in age. Teaching is psychology and enlightment, not a G.P.A or status quo. Knowledge is freedom in freedom's finest form, therefore those seeking for opportunities should be able to follow their efforts without the constraints of finances or record.

PISA is flawed. In Germany we had to do extra tests for the PISA study in grade 9 and those tests didnt count into our grades. So you can imagine that everybody didnt learn and try to be good. Everyone basically just fucked around during that test. The test is not very reliable to be honest.

if any of us Northern Europeans gave a fuck about school and studied as much as East Asians we would outperform them all by an insane margin (I went to the university prep school "Gymnasium" in Germany which would rank among the highest in the world) and about 80% of guys don't even do their homework, look at those scores, Asians do nothing but study and still can't actually set themselves apart form us, honestly it's pretty pathetic how bad their system truly is

As an Asian myself, I think the true best education is the one that motivates students to learn and discover by themselves, not the one that chokes students to death with so-called "knowledge".

PISA does not test creative and critical thinking. It is more a reflection of how good you do exam paper. I am not sure if PISA is a good test of how educated a person is. Your economy cannot grow if you do not have creative, innovative and critical thinkers.

I am a teenager growing up in Singapore. I can enjoy my life thoroughly, while still being better educated than most of the developed world. I don't see what the down side is here.

Author MegaSportsluver ( ago)
As a Singaporean student, I must say that aspects such as critical thinking and nurturing creativity can be improved.
One of the A Level subjects, General Paper, which is taught in junior college/high school is supposed to impart critical thinking skills and personal voice. Yet teachers in my school turned the subject into a formula - memorising facts to put into the essay, memorising comprehension question types instead of provoking students' opinions...
Project Work, another junior college subject, is also supposed to get students to think out of the box... but when ideas are lambasted by teachers, too much emphasis is being placed on the structure of proposals...

As for stress levels and whatnot, I would urge students to ask themselves why they are taking the subjects they are taking. Is it because it is the easiest to score that A1/A in the exam? If you don't like it, why take it? I took Literature in secondary school even though I suck at it (writing essays), but still enjoyed it nevertheless. If it's because it's compulsory, try to understand the concepts instead of hard memorising them. If you can't understand them by yourself, ask your teacher. And enjoy learning. Don't think that the exam is the end in itself, because it isn't. You know, there may be ten-year series (a compilation of exam papers for the past ten years) for the O Levels and A levels, but there isn't one for your biggest exam - life. Cheers!

well the problem with education in most western countries like UK and USA is that they put way too much stress on you especially the smarter ones. I have 6 days a week tues to sat is 8 - 4 and on mon its 8 - 6. we then get three 30 mins preps on each day except sat along with sometimes having chapel on sunday for about an hour. and what makes it worse is that i live 30 mins away from it.

Author StarlingofAzerath ( ago)
Yea. Other countries do better cause children have support from parents and are pushed to do their best. Granted some are pushed too hard but in America not many parents care if their kid succeeds or not. School is just a free babysitter for them. I've seen my senior class dwindle to 1/4 its size than freshman year cause students drop out or fail to graduate with a basic 2.0 gpa. If parents started caring more, then that could make a huge difference and will help any future change we make in our education system.

the only reason to why i came to this video is bc i know singapore will be part of the top, but now i realised they are just painting us in the best light they can. the education system here is honestly really hectic - 3 major exams (psle at 12, o levels at 16, a levels at 18) and also the high competive rates, its really hard to even try and borderline pass now. we dont even have enough time to study since theres other things like ccas and leadership reponsibilities. honestly i swear one of these days ill just completely break down and cry my heart out while wishing i studied in finland tbh

As a Hong Kong student, it is great to be well educated, but meanwhile it is so sad to feel unworthy of love from our parents and the society if we can't get into a university. The 12-year free and compulsory education is what we are blessed with but the amount of tests, exams and homework are overwhelming.

I'm in 11 th grade, I read at a 7th grade level, it's just because I don't like reading so I don't read much.

Now I'm still in 11th grade, hehe, but now my reading level is on track and now I read as a Junior.

if you read anywhere above a 6th grade level give yourself a pat on the back, that is higher than the national United States average of 4-5 th grade...

It's not that black and white. According to this, my country ranks 7th after Finland. The amount of money our teachers get is ridiculous. We're always under stress because seeing that Estonia ranks high, the country puts more pressure on us to rank even higher. All of that made my mental health go horrible. I stopped going to school for months at a time because I had breakdowns, where I'd just lose self control and usually try to hurt myself to get rid of the mental pain. That was 9th grade. I chose to go to a vocational school over gymnasium, even though I was one of the best students and vocational schools are considered for dumber people. I knew I couldn't live through the stress of gymnasium. Now I'm leaving vocational school. I need to take care of myself first, do what I love - travel - and one day finish what I started. If my country and the educational system wouldn't put all that stress on us, I'd be graduating.

The US may be 29th on the list but 17/25 best universities in the world in 2016 are in the United States, and then another 5 are based in the U.K. Honestly, I don't think the USA is that shit because of it's fairly low youth education rankings based on a few tests. By the way I'm not American.

Here's the link for the list

Why do Asians take all of the top 5? You guys just cherry pick information and stereotype us as smarter and you don't understand that we are studying day and night at least 200-280 days of the year depending on grade level. They have a lot of academic - related youth suicides, Google the shit up.
