Education and smartness go hand in hand, whether bookish or practical education. Education is thus the most important factor for the development of any country. Check how the following ten countries produce some of the world's smartest generations of kids for their nation's future, as listed by Business Insider-
Do you want to know why these kids are so smart? It is because Singapore has an obsession with education. Being one of the world's toughest meritocracies, Singapore's education system today has produced the world's smartest kids. Apart from this, kids in Singapore are made to follow strict discipline and they enter a stream before they are ten years old. This obsession with education is felt everywhere, from Singapore's two dollar bill that portrays a professor facing his students to headlines in the media which cover students having excelled in education. A reason for this could be that Singapore, being a poor country in the past with no resources and hence no much opportunity for exports , had to rely on its education system ,thanks to which it is one of the ninth richest country in the world today.
