2012 PISA Results Highlight Inequities, International Lessons for U.S. Education Print E-mail

Today the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released results from the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), a worldwide study of 15-year-old students' performance on mathematics, science and reading. American students' performance remained largely unchanged from the previous PISA that was administered in 2009, with the U.S. scoring below the OECD average in math and close to the OECD average in science and reading.

AACTE calls on policymakers and education leaders to consider the results along with findings from the "Strong Performers and Successful Reformers in Education - Lessons from PISA 2012 for the United States" carefully. Based on these latest PISA outcomes and on the OECD's 2011 recommendations to help the U.S. become more globally competitive, AACTE and President/CEO Dr. Sharon Robinson highlight lessons in a new press statement.
