In a worldwide comparison of years of education, by religion, Jews emerged as the most educated group by far, in new research from the Pew Research Center. Jews have 13.4 years of formal schooling, on average, followed by Christians, at 9.3 years.
Another notable finding was that the most highly educated religious groups have the smallest gap (or, in the case of Jews, no gap) between the average years of formal schooling of men and women.
