Ladies and Gents, We Have Arrived!

Have we? But for sure we have missed the boat... again! I'm talking about the 2009 OECD’s PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment). I had drawn the attention back in April 2006. That was 11 months before the cutoff date. The next one is in 2012.

It would have be fun for our education system to be compared to those of 67 other countries more than half of which are outside of the OECD (including Singapore, Indonesia and Tunisia). And the results would have provided an independent perspective as to whether signs like the one above should stay where they are. Nevertheless, just in case we have MPs who are also teachers, please start here.

je ne vois pas Maurice dans la liste de 65 pays/économies participant à l'enquête PISA. Ni en 2009 ni en 2012..
Bien cordialement,

Hi, there was a small extra group of countries which also participated in 2009. And Mauritius was one of them. There is another post with some results for Mauritius. Have a look. I am guessing we also participated in the 2012 survey. Cheers!
