Education the world over

So this isn't really a maths post. Anyway while internet/wiki browsing I came across the UN based "education index". I have no idea of the methodology and for some strange reason the wiki article lists the 2007 rankings.

Anyway here they are , Cuba and to a lesser extent  Kazakstan seem to be better than I'd have personally guessed.

Does anyone know either the methodology here or have access to more recent data?

    I think this is the updated version? It has rankings in terms of overall 'human development index' (pg140), but I didn't see any education index ones. It does say what education factors they look at, though (pg 170).
