Speaking of Canada, Canadian children and those from many other nations now outperform children in the U.S. on international grade-level tests. Jeanne Allen from the Center for Education Reform has examined the results and delivered the bad news:
“The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) – on Tuesday revealed a significant decline in math scores for 15-year-olds in the U.S. compared to 2018, the last test administration, which measures student achievement in math and science in 37 countries finds that once again the US’s record is in the proverbial toilet.”
As for the overall score, the leader of the free world that is supposed to outcompete our rivals in brainpower and innovation ranks, drum roll please, 18th. We are behind Poland and Estonia for God’s sake! Wake up America!
