PISA Test Shows How U.S. Students Fare Against the World

Every so often this blog will describe homeschooling as internationally relevant, since indeed homeschooling is not a movement or phenomenon strictly confined to the United States.  Education in general is of course internationally relevant, and each country has its own unique way of teaching its young people.  The Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, is one way of comparing the progress and skill levels of students in 65 countries around the world.  This article reports the results of the latest PISA, which was administered in 2012.  You might be interested and maybe a even a bit surprised to see how the students in the United States fared against students in other parts of the world.
