I agree, as ISCED is an international proposed standard, from UNESCO,
which is specialised on this topic.

But beware, ISCED standard, originally designed in 1997, has been updated in
september 2011, from 6 levels to 8 levels.
Apparently, the wiki refers the 1997 standard. It should be updated too,
and the reference tag should be isced1997: or isced2011:, not isced: only.

See reference, http://www.uis.unesco.org/Education/Documents/UNESCO_GC_36C-19_ISCED_EN.pdf
chapter 20. CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN ISCED 2011 AND ISCED 1997 LEVELS

Could be time to update the wiki, too, if we agree on the tagging.
