International student assessment comparison report

Fifteen-year-old students in the U.S. are lagging behind their international counterparts in math and science, according to results of the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment. “Our scores are stagnant. We’re not seeing any improvement for our 15-year-olds,” said Jack Buckley, commissioner at the National Center for Education Statistics. American students scored average in reading and science and below average in math. While U.S. teenagers were average in reading and science, their scores were below average in math, compared to 64 other countries and economies that participated in PISA.
