Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the population’s education was Canada’s most excellent resource. He noted education allows citizens to think, adapt, and learn. He said, “Our natural resources are important, and they always will be. But Canadians know that what it takes to grow and prosper isn’t just what’s under our feet, it’s what is between our ears.” Japan, with 50.5 percent of adults with further education, follows Canada in the ranking. Israel, with 49.9 percent, South Korea with 46.86 percent, and the U.K. with 45.96 percent follow close behind.
