Dave O. Jorgensen

Abstract


A cross-country analysis of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Report 2016 was carried out to compare Philippines to ASEAN countries and the top five countries from each continent in terms of educational indicators. The indicators evaluated in the study are expected and net enrolment rates, population with at least some secondary education, inequality in education and adjusted inequality index in education, satisfaction with education quality, international student mobility, and education achievements. The findings of the study showed that Philippines appear at the bottom of the list or very close to the bottom which does not have satisfying values in terms of these indicators. It is also suggested that Philippines should invest more on education to have a better performance in human development index.
