    Some of the best

    It is no coincidence that the most successful economies also have some of the world's best education system.

    What doest it mean by 'some of the best'. I can kind of understand the meaning, but it is not clear.

    Thank you in advance.

    Their school systems are among the best.

    There is a group of systems the writer thinks are the best. Some of those systems are in the most successful economies.

    What's interesting is that that means the other best school systems are in unsuccessful economies. I wonder what the writer would say about that.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
