The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, or “action for people, planet and prosperity”, was adopted by the United Nations in 2015. An important role belongs to the education, which embraces ten targets. Currently, the international community coordinating by UNESCO is actively developing a set of indicators to reflect the level of the education goal and targets achievement. The article investigates the possibility of using a common set of indicators for countries with vastly differing socioeconomic conditions and levels of  education system development and applying universal indicators to elaborate national education policies in different countries. Context analysis of the indicators of sustainable development goal and targets achievement, and differences in the interpretation of the indicators depending on specific country characteristics are analyzed.
