PISA scores out.

Lost my internet for a while and am back on the incredible log-cabin phone line speed now at least, and found they have reported on the 2015 PISA scores finally.

Schools and teachers, thereby our students, sit on the edges of their seats each year in anticipation of how well we do against the global competition. Not.

Singapore was first across the board: Math, Reading, and Science.

I was very surprised to see Common Core left us below average in math, our score falling by 11 points. That's perplexing, isn't it? We remained about the same in Reading and Science, so that's great we're only really falling further behind in one area.

We did the best in reading, 24th place. Hooray!

If we took 24th place in the sports Olympics... oh excuse me that would NEVER happen. We won't accept anything but tops in the world for sports. But in brains - meh.

A great strategy for global dominance in the 21st century.
