Education has improved dramatically in Sub-Saharan Africa over the last five to ten years according to the UN's 2011 Human Development Report.

But despite the improvement, the ten lowest positions in the rankings all are occupied by Sub-Saharan countries.

Bottom of the list is the Democratic Republic of the Congo or DRC.

The annual report provides rankings of national achievement in health, education and income across the world.

Daniel Dickinson asked Bill Orme from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) if the rankings were at all surprising.
