Importance This article discusses the issues of education quality assessment in Russian regions. Objectives The article aims to compile the rating of education quality in the regions of Russia. Methods For the study, we used the methods of data envelopment analysis and composite indexes. The quality of education was assessed through dividing all the regions of the Russian Federation by type of economic activity. For consideration, we used the Rosstat data for the period of 2006 to 2015. Results We found that the quality of education varies depending on the type of region and its economic orientation. The level of education in industrial regions is higher than in export-oriented ones. Our article presents a rating of ten most and ten least effective regions at quality of education. Conclusions Education policies should be tailored to the regional context. Financial and economic centers and industrial regions demonstrate high levels of quality and efficiency of education as opposed to export-oriented regions. Given the orientation of Russia's economy to exports, special attention should be paid to raising the level of education in export-oriented regions.
