Country Rankings on Educational Policy

This site purports to summarize data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on a variety of topics, including education.

The stats I found most interesting were that US does not rank in top ten for reading literacy or scientific and mathematic literacy, but we have the greatest percentage of the population that has attained a secondary education (over 86%!). Most importantly, the US spends 5.2% of its GDP on educational institutions--12th overall.
