“We have one of the best systems of education in the world. Poland has climbed from 14th to 10th position in the world and to 5th in Europe since 2012 in the prestgious Pearson education league table,” according to Gazeta Wyborcza. Poland’s score is impressive compared against other European countries. “You should be proud,” said  Sir Michael Barber, head of the research team. The Learning Curve report by Pearson is based on the results of three recognised pieces of educational research: the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (a study that assesses the skills of ten-year-olds), Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (which examines the mathematics and scientific knowledge of fifteen-year-old students), and the Programme for International Student Assessment, which also assess the skills of fifteen-year-olds. The report also takes into account the number of people with secondary and higher education and also the number of illiterate people in society. Although South Korea and Finland were better than Poland, Warsaw outperformed France, Spain, Germany and all of its neighbours. The report shows that Poland’s educational system has impressively developed since the last report published in 2012. “I want to congratulate all our students, the credit goes them, their effort and talent,” says  Minister of National Education Joanna Kluzik-Rostkowska. “Such results show that it is always worth acting and making changes despite criticism,” she added.
