    What's the English equivalent that you want to express? If you meant something like higher education that would be 高等教育. – user3306356 Mar 1 '18 at 4:38

Please pay attention to some related collocations in Chinese:

发达的 is to describe the degree of development: 发达的系统

经过几十年的不懈努力,我国已经建成了发达的教育系统

先进的 is to describe the superiority: 先进的理念

这所学校的教师们有着先进的教育理念

教育 itself can only be evaluated in a general way, such as good/normal/bad

该地区的居民接受了良好的(一般的/较差的)教育

The sentence you made can be:

发达的教育系统(的建立)是民族振兴的标志。

Note:

  • 民族兴旺 is unconventional, and it should be 民族振兴, as we always say 振兴(中华)民族
  • XXX 是 XXX 的标志, rather than 标记. This is also by convention.

What word would be appropriate to use in the above sentence?

Depend on you want to say 'developed' or 'advanced'

  • 发达 = developed (having a strong and extensive system)

  • 先进 = advanced ( having the latest technology, at the leading edge of the field)

  • "发达的教育(系统)” = developed education system

  • “先进的教育(系统)" = advanced education system

I think this will illustrate the difference better:

发达的肌肉 = developed muscles

先进的科技 = advanced technology

According to me, both “发达的教育” and “先进的教育” can be used. I mean, if you use either of these two in an informal situation, we can totally understand. However, the latter one would be more appropriate. The adj "发达的" is usually used to describe muscle, economy, and brain (intelligence), while the adj "先进的" is a better match for education or technology.
