In the next few hours, the world will learn the results of the 2012 Programme for International Assessment (PISA) test. You can watch a live presentation of the results, followed by panel discussions starting at 10:00 AM EST on the PISADAY website.
There has been a flurry of media coverage over the past several days about what the PISA results might mean. Tim Walker, an American teacher currently teaching in Finland, has a great list of media links on his blog. He intends to add to his collection of articles over the next few days. Last week, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) released a video entitled, “What Does the PISA Report Tell Us About U.S. Education?” It is worth watching as you prepare to interpret the results.
I will report back with some of my own thoughts over the next few days. Please share any reactions that you have to the results along with links to insightful media coverage that you encounter.
