Written Statement – PISA 2012, 03/12/13 [W]

Huw Lewis, Minister for Education and Skills, has made a statement following the results of the PISA international schools assessments.

PISA is a survey of educational achievement run by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It assesses fifteen year old students in schools across the world in reading, mathematics and science. 137 schools in Wales took part this year. Welsh students performed less well than the OECD average and the UK average. The Minister has said that the results need to be improved, but that the current plans for educational improvement have yet to take effect.
