Poor marks for Australian education

Poor marks for Australian education:

"Australia has ranked behind New Zealand, Ireland and 10 other countries in a global education index.

Finland tops the list, followed by South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore.

Published in a report called The Learning Curve by worldwide education firm Pearson, the index compares the cognitive skills and education attainment of 40 countries.

The UK is ranked at number six and New Zealand, Canada and Ireland also rank above Australia, which languishes at 13.

But we can take comfort in the fact that the United States falls behind Australia at number 17."
