Interview: Jill Barshay on PISA scores, backsliding of top US students, Asian testing strength

Hechinger Report contributing editor Jill Barshay took part in a podcast, “The United States Gets a C,”  with American Radio Works this week (Dec 10, 2013).

“The results are in from academic tests of 15-year-olds in 65 countries and regions. PISA shows Finland slipping, Vietnam doing well, and the United States still middle of the pack.”

Barshay and host Stephen Smith discussed these topics:

1) How are top US students faring  internationally?

2) Finland’s slide, Vietnam’s debut

3) Why are Asian educational systems so strong?
