Alliance President Bob Wise Issues Statement in Response to Release of the 2006 Programme for International Student Assessment
Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia, issued an audio statement in response to today’s release of the 2006 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).
The study, conducted every three years by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, shows that 15-year-old students in the U.S. continue to perform, in science and mathematics, at levels that demonstrate conclusively that far too many are unprepared for the global economy.
