Statista dossier about UK schools and education

In 2018 the United Kingdom had some of the best educated 15 year old's in Europe, according to the OECD's triennial PISA tests. If the UK wants the best education system in Europe, however it may have to increase its overall share of GDP dedicated to education, as well as deal with the problem of overcrowded classrooms.
