OECD lauds high education rates among Israelis

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Israel has one of the highest-educated populations of any country in the developed world, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) latest global education report, released on Nov. 24. The “Education at a Glance 2015” report found that 85 percent of Israelis ages 25-64 have completed upper secondary education, compared with the OECD average of 76 percent. And 49 percent of Israelis in that age group went on to tertiary education (universities or colleges), compared with the OECD average of 34 percent—the second-highest rate of any country in the 34-member nation OECD. Israel also had a low high school dropout rate of 14.6 percent, compared with the OECD average of 24.7 percent.
