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?
