Australian Education declines from #2 to #25.

The BBC recently reported that Finland had the best education system in the world according to a table compiled the Economist Intelligence Unit for Pearson. According to the information, Finland does not go along with the evaluation-driven centralised model popular in most of the Western world. It implemented its own unique education reforms 40 years ago which has moved the country to the top of the international education system rankings according to the New York Times.

Australia has slipped from #2 in 2002 (behind Finland) to 25th in the last rankings. Should we have followed the claimed flawed US system or the Finnish system?

The status of teachers in Finland is higher than doctors and lawyers. Should the same be done in Australia? If so, how?
