    "The educational system is very significant and the authorities of each country need to pay attention to it."

    Would be correct.

    Education system is incorrect or it can be used in other contexts; Could you please let me know in which context we can use it?

    This is actually a difficult question to answer...

    I think that the two can be used interchangeably most times. However, when referring to a specific one I would say "The American Education system." so education is the correct word to use. But in a sentence like: "There are a lot of problems in our [educational/education] system." I think either is fine.

    Sorry to revive this thread, but I am still confused about which one is better. If I refer to all ''education/educational systems inside a country, which one should I use?
