U.S. Teens Lag as China Soars on International Test - Bloomberg
Do you think this is a cause of concern? Or you don't believe these test/numbers mean anything.Fifteen-year-olds in the U.S. ranked 25th among peers from 34 countries on a math test and scored in the middle in science and reading, while Chinas Shanghai topped the charts, raising concern that the U.S. isnt prepared to succeed in the global economy.
The Paris-based Organization of Economic Cooperation & Development, which represents 34 countries, today released the 2009 Program for International Student Assessment.
