12/14/10—At this busy time of year, some may have missed the startling findings of the latest international comparison of 15-year-olds’ examination results that appeared on the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times. The results released by the OECD’s PISA (Program for International Student Achievement) showed that 15-year-olds in Shanghai, which was taking part in PISA for the first time, finished first relative to their peers in 65 countries in every subject – reading, science, and math. The US was respectively 17th, 23rd and 31st (see Table below).
