Every three years, the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) conducts a survey (Program for International Student Assessment) to find out where high school students from around the world stand when it comes to reading, science and math. Today, results from 2012’s PISA were released and according to the findings, U.S. high school students are failing. Just how bad is it? We’re below average and slippin’.
Per the WSJ:
The results from the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which are being released on Tuesday, show that teenagers in the U.S. slipped from 25th to 31st in math since 2009; from 20th to 24th in science; and from 11th to 21st in reading, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, which gathers and analyzes the data in the U.S.
Okay but when the results from 2012’s Program for International Student Swag Assessment comes out, I’m sure we’ll be claiming pole position! #swagallday
