Israel was ranked 49th out of 64 countries in the ratio between the number of students in a class and the number of computers in the school, an OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) research survey revealed.

The OECD report also revealed an enormous gap in education facilities between rich and poor communities.

According to the data, the ratio between the number of students in the average classroom and computers at school is 0.37, similar to the ratio in Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay, Panama and Albania.

However it is much lower than other countries in the study, such as New Zealand (1.16) Australia (1.02) United States (0.91) and Germany (0.60).
