From TECHPRESIDENT:

The World Bank launched last week an open data portal called the Systems Approach for Better Education Results or SABER, which has so far collected data from 100 countries on education policies and institutions. Officials can use the tool to gather and analyze information on their own education systems and compare them with those of other countries.

The World Bank’s website, while targeted at policymakers, is accessible to the general public. It provides an interactive map that allows users to hover over a country and see what data is available and it also provides an evaluation of the country’s performance in certain categories such as: early childhood development, engaging the private sector, school autonomy and accountability, school health, and teachers. Decision-makers can also compare data and ratings across countries.
