Recent data collected by the Program for International Assessment (PISA) found the United States trailing international averages for student aptitude in mathematics, and placing just ahead in areas of science and reading. In total, students in the U.S. were outperformed by at least 14 countries in each area, and by 36 nations in math. The test, organized by the French-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and administered every three years for 15-year-old students in select school districts, serves as an international benchmark for success in teaching and learning. Colleges and universities have taken notice of the declines, and in partnership with private foundations and government, are working to reverse course for the United States’ place as one of the world’s most educated countries.
