USA: reformarbete i ljuset av PISA

I samband med rapporteringen av resultaten från PISA 2009 har OECD publicerat en omfattande fördjupad analys av reformarbetet i USA relativt policy och praktik i de utbildningssystem som når de bästa resultaten eller visar de största förbättringarna.

US President Obama has launched one of the world’s most ambitious education reform agendas. Under the heading “Race to the Top”, this agenda encourages US states to adopt internationally benchmarked standards and assessments that prepare students for success in college and the workplace: recruit, develop, reward, and retain effective teachers and principals; build data systems that measure student success; and inform teachers and principals how they can improve their practices and turn around their lowest-performing schools.
