Knowledge and skills today are increasingly becoming the key to a prosperous and fruitful future. Around the world, the demand for secondary and higher education is growing rapidly. All these circumstances have made the problem of education the center of controversy and analysis everywhere. Globalization, the increased role of knowledge as the main driver of economic development and the resulting technological changes in the workplace dictate the need for highly skilled workers, and all this together puts additional pressure on governments to modernize and rebuild education systems so that graduates are better prepared both for work and for further training. The transformation of the education sector is taking place under the influence of new technologies and human practices that change the social order. As a result, due to the fact that national education systems are diverse in their structure and content of educational programs, it can be difficult to compare the achievements of different countries and track their progress towards goals at the national and international levels.
